      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.105 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:diamond: , J:diamond:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0,06, SB calls $0,05, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0,14) K:heart: , 7:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,1, SB calls $0,10.

      Turn: ($0,34) 9:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0,34) 4:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0,33, Hero calls $0,33.

      Final Pot: $1,00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kd Jd)
      SB shows (Js Ts)

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Kd Jd)

      Should I bet on the turn? The only weaker hand that might call is a flushdraw? After the check behind I have to call his riverbet, even if it is potsized?

      Thanks in advance,

      Hello DesertStingray,

      Against such a station you definitely have to consider Bet/Folding the turn for protection rather Checking behind and turning your hand into bluff-catcher as what even happened. Rather bet the turn.

      Best Regards.
