      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 5 folds, MP2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.25) 8, J, 7 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.29.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(K K).
      MP2 shows a straight, jack high(9 8).

      MP2 wins with a straight, jack high(9 8).

      Turn: Should I make my bet a little bit bigger? or just Check behind to wait for next street to see how the opponent reacts? (I mean Slowplay!)

      River: His range was a little bit large (VPIP/PFR: 29/11) so, instead of Checking behind to see the SD without investing more into the pot, I put another barrel. Did I do something wrong here? or just missed reading the opponent?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Preflop: 2 limpers = $0,12 raise.
      Postflop: Don't like your bet on river at all, a lot of 2pair combos are possible, some combos make straight like 9x. Pretty standard Check behind there. Turn bet could be bigger but ain't a must.

      Best Regards.
