      On Game, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      MP3: $59.61 (119.2 bb)
      CO: $54.72 (109.4 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $49.50 (99 bb)
      BB: $86.49 (173 bb)
      MP1: $13.21 (26.4 bb)
      MP2: $55.42 (110.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K K
      MP1 calls $0.50, 2 folds, CO calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.50, 2 folds, MP1 calls $2, CO calls $2

      Flop: ($8.25) 7 7 9 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, CO checks, Hero bets $6, MP1 folds, CO calls $6

      Turn: ($20.25) 6 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: ($20.25) J (2 players)
      CO bets $15, Hero folds

      2 issues:

      Villain is decent reg, 18/12/5, limps 4%. AF=4, river AF 1.9. Usually isolates limpers. When I bet the flop into 2 op and he calls, is there any reason for me to continue when flush comes in too? Straight not so possible, only T8s in his range I would say. I think he would check a pocket pair all the way to showdown.

      Raise bigger preflop? MP1 is calling anyway (limp-call 78%) so I just drag in CO with probably pp. If he catches a set and does not raise on low flop, I'm commited by the turn if I raise bigger pre.

      Hello circoflax,

      If you have stations even in the hand I would definitely raise it bigger preflop. But otherwise seems to be fine, especially if being against tight-passive opponent. Difficult to Call the river without any specific information.

      Best Regards.
