      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $0.97 (48.5 bb)
      SB: $5.34 (267 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.06 (103 bb)
      UTG+1: $7.83 (391.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.58 (79 bb)
      MP1: $1.94 (97 bb)
      MP2: $1.02 (51 bb)
      MP3: $1.14 (57 bb)
      CO: $2.80 (140 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.04, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, MP1 calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.41) 7 3 Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.28, MP1 calls $0.28

      Turn: ($0.97) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.58 and is all-in, MP1 calls $1.46 and is all-in

      River: ($3.89) 3 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results: $3.89 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: 7 3 Q 9 3
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$1.94 net)
      MP1 showed A T and won $3.75 ($1.81 net)

      I overbet shove on turn because stack was getting weird and if I bet 2/3 or pot-sized I'm very much committed on river no matter what comes. So if a straight draw or diamond comes I would be in a great dilemma.

      Hello cheekopeh,

      We got it in being ahead, don't be result oriented! You could even consider betting like $0,70 on the turn and ship the river, just to invite weaker hands come along.

      Best Regards.
