      MP: $2.50
      MP+1: $1.76
      LP: $6.93

      BTN: $4.81
      SB: $3.90

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has K:spade: 2:club:

      fold, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $0.05, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.05, fold, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.17, 3 players) K:heart: K:diamond: 8:spade:
      Hero checks, MP+1 checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.17, 3 players) A:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.12, MP+1 raises to $0.24, fold, Hero calls $0.12

      River: ($0.65, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP+1 bets $1.47 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.47

      MP+1 shows 6:heart: A:spade: (Two Pair, Aces and Kings) (Pre 65%, Flop 0%, Turn 5%)
      Hero shows K:spade: 2:club: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 35%, Flop 100%, Turn 95%)
      Hero wins $3.42

      What do you think of my line here? Is it too fancy - should I just bet out on flop?
      As I evaluated it afterwards I think he could easaly have a backdoor flush when he minraise the turn as he pick up a flushdraw...

      Hello StraGus,

      Bet the flop yourself, you wont get much value anyways with just Checking and it will be pretty hard to understand where you stand with our hand.

      But as played I'd just raise it right on turn and against his stack plan to play for the stacks. We might even protect our hand.

      Best Regards.
