      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      Hero (SB): $5 (100 bb)
      BB: $6.14 (122.8 bb) 53/12/1.4/0.0/22/68
      UTG+2: $8.49 (169.8 bb)
      MP1: $8.40 (168 bb)
      MP2: $5.13 (102.6 bb)
      MP3: $2.60 (52 bb)
      CO: $5.51 (110.2 bb)
      BTN: $1.93 (38.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.50) 5 7 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      Standard C-Bet

      Turn: ($1.30) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80

      My hand improved to a flush draw with 2 overcards so my 2nd Barrel was a semi-bluff.

      River: ($2.90) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.80, BB folds

      So stuck with nothing on a pretty drawy board. Loose fish could have completed a flush, could have had a monster all along or could have had a draw he was chasing all along or perhaps had just overcards like me or really anything since his range is too wide. I bet since he never showed any strength all along and I thought I could 3rd Barrel and get away with it which I did but is this play right?

      Results: $2.90 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: 5 7 5 T Q
      Hero mucked K A and won $2.78 ($1.33 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$1.45 net)
