      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:heart: , K:club:
      MP3 raises to $0.40, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.40, MP3 calls $1.00.

      MP3 calls 3-bet preflop with a wide range, most of which are Ax and occasionally high cards. May be, I should have raised more to bring more chips in the pot.

      Flop: ($2.85) K:diamond: , 8:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2.03, Hero raises to $6.00, MP3 calls $3.97.

      I thougth that most of my opponent's range had missed the flop, so I checked to let let him bluff.

      Turn: ($14.85) 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      I don't know why I checked. Probably, I was scared by the 3-rd spade on the board. I think I should have bet here, since with 2 spades the villain would check the flop.

      What would you do?

      River: ($14.85) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $6.1, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $20.95

      I have not spades and he probably has one, so I fold.
