      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $2.00
      SB:
      $2.15
      BB:
      $2.00
      MP2:
      $1.44
      MP3:
      $2.99
      CO (Hero):
      $2.03


      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A.
      MP2 raises to $0.06, MP3 calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.24, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.18, MP3 calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($0.75) 3, 8, Q (3 players)
      MP2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.75) A (3 players)
      MP2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.36, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.36.

      River: ($1.47) 2 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.


      Did I miss value on river, or was the check okay given the board and the call on the turn?

      Hi,

      He would call with any Ax hand and since 2 is complete blank you should valuebet 1$ to get called worse Ax hands.
      HIi most likely hand range is AT/AJ or sometimes some flushdraws.

      Hello hackbinder,

      What's your plan if he MP2 shoves?

      Turn: Also what's the idea of betting so small on the turn? I mean if he really has the Ax then he is going to pay us more as well. For that given reason I'd bet the turn ~$0,60 to protect our hand as well even from draws.

      As played
      River: I'd bet ~1/2 pot size which should be enough for the value-bet, might give him room for hero-calls with some weaker pairs/PPs as well.

      Best Regards.

      That is a great question... and puts it all into perspective actually when I think a little deeper about it... Thanks!

      Well, actually we had even to consider folding since we at the best get a coinflip. Usually his 4bet range is going to be rather stronger and maybe some even do just 4bet with KK+.
