      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $2.39 (47.8 bb)
      SB: $6.57 (131.4 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5.77 (115.4 bb)
      UTG: $1.49 (29.8 bb)
      MP: $2.38 (47.6 bb)
      CO: $10.64 (212.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Kc Kd
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.17, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, CO calls $0.28

      Flop: ($0.92) Qh 9c 2s (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, CO calls $0.45

      Turn: ($1.82) Qd (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.07, CO calls $1.07

      River: ($3.96) Jc (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $5.26, Hero folds

      Results: $3.96 pot ($0.16 rake)
      Final Board: Qh 9c 2s Qd Jc
      Hero mucked Kc Kd and lost (-$1.97 net)
      CO mucked and won $3.80 ($1.83 net)

      This is zoom. Villian is 27/18 from 23 hands.
      Did I make the right play? I'm concerned by the turn bet, should i check/call and see how he plays the river or should I bet bigger to elliminate bluffs?

      Thanks

      Hello 3prswins,

      Preflop: I'd raise it even bigger here $0,60.
      Flop: We have to CB bigger to get value and might protect our hand from draws. :)
      Turn: To bet it for protection and avoid him starting to bluff on both streets vs us is betting fine.
      River: Doubt that we getting called from a lot worse nor I doubt that the guy could shove with worse.

      Best Regards.
