      SB: $50.82 (203.3 bb) 43/16/1.3/6.8/38/209 Flop Donk Bet 24%(25)
      Hero (BB): $38.97 (155.9 bb) 31/26/1.9/3.3/50/95
      UTG: $12.50 (50 bb)
      MP: $25.69 (102.8 bb)
      CO: $18.75 (75 bb)
      BTN: $27.57 (110.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K A
      4 folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $1, SB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2) K T 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($4) 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50

      River: ($7) 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $2, Hero raises to $4.50, SB calls $2.50

      He's been betting so weak, perhaps he's just bluffing and might not call a river raise. Or perhaps he might, he's loose enough. I just didn't want to win such a small pot with TPTK. So what should I have done along the course of the hand? Raised turn to build up the pot when he bet so small?
