      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.105 by

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K:heart: , K:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.16, 8 folds, BB calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.34) J:heart: , 6:spade: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.24, BB calls $0.24.

        Bet a little over two-thirds - should I have bet more for more protection?

      Turn: ($0.82) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.6, BB calls $0.60.

        Pairs the board - Again I bet - bet more?

      River: ($2.02) T:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.08, Hero folds.

        River completes the flush and this normally passive player begins to show some strength - I fight with the urge to call but in the end lay it down.
        Good lay down or does this guy try to bluff with a worse hand then mine?

      Final Pot: $3.10

      Hello Spidey1978,

      You could easily bet the flop & turn bigger. :) The board is pretty draw-heavy. Although as played the river is really cruel, most likely it's towards to FD here. But I am pretty sure we could avoid even that kind of situation by betting bigger flop & turn then he wouldn't even donk like that with very weak hands. Might sometimes come up with JT there.

      Best Regards.
