      Yesterday veriz helped me with playing a set on a heavy board. Now it is a bit different situation: I am not a preflop aggressor and I'm out of position.

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2:heart: , 2:club:
      CO raises to $0.20, BU calls $0.20, SB folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Both of my opponents are rather loose. CO is a fish who can call 2-3 streets with a second pair.

      Flop: ($0.65) K:heart: , 5:spade: , 2:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BU bets $0.44, Hero calls $0.44, CO calls $0.44.

      I though that I should wait for preflop aggressor to c-bet, so I checked. Should I bet here instead of checking? May be check/raise would be better?

      Turn: ($1.97) 4:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BU bets $1.38, Hero raises to $4.00, CO folds, BU calls $2.62.

      BU bet the flop, and I though he would bet again here, because nothing changed, so I play check/raise.

      River: ($9.97) 7:spade: (2 players)
      Hero raises $7.02 (All-In), BU calls $6.25 (All-In).

      BU didn't check the turn so he unlikely has a flush, I move all-in.

      Final Pot: $23.24

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows (Ks Qh)
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, deuces (2h 2c)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, deuces (2h 2c)
