      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K:spade: , K:club:
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.08, 4 folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) 8:spade: , 4:club: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.14, MP3 calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.47) 5:spade: (2 players)

      River: ($1.13) J:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.81, MP3 calls $0.81.

      Final Pot: $2.75

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ks Kc)
      MP3 shows a flush, ace high (As Ts)

      MP3 wins with a flush, ace high (As Ts)

      Was my pre-flop bet too small? After reviewing the hand, I think that it is. But if yes, it is small, by how much should I raise in EP or MP or even LP?

      Another thing, was the bet on the river a risky move? I mean he could have re raised me there representing a flush. So the question is, is it better if I just went with a check/call rather than a raise?

      Tnx for the analysis. :]

      Hello timsuy,

      Nah, preflop is fine although what I don't like is the Bet size on the streets. You should still bet a bit bigger on the turn and rather Bet a lot smaller on the river cause there ain't going to be a lot worse hands which are capable of paying you.

      Best Regards.
