      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      MP1: $11.07 (110.7 bb)
      MP2: $14.90 (149 bb)
      MP3: $10.54 (105.4 bb)
      CO: $8.78 (87.8 bb)
      BTN: $5.98 (59.8 bb)
      Hero (SB): $9.90 (99 bb)
      BB: $4 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K Q
      4 folds, BTN calls $0.10, Hero completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.30) K Q 6 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BB calls $0.20, BTN folds

      Turn: ($0.70) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50

      River: ($1.70) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.97, Hero folds

      Should I have Bet a small amount on the river and folded to a raise instead?

      Results: $1.70 pot ($0.08 rake)
      Final Board: K Q 6 9 T
      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$0.80 net)
      BB mucked and won $1.62 ($0.82 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: You can easily isolate here even with such a hand and either take it down preflop or take the initiative for postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Nah, not really most of the draws got there and for us it was a freeplay pot. :) Well played!

      Best Regards.
