      BTN: $21.05 (105.3 bb)
      SB: $40.22 (201.1 bb) 24/13/1.8/4.8/28/465
      BB: $20.30 (101.5 bb)
      Hero (MP): $23.58 (117.9 bb) 24/18/1.3/16.7/20/37
      CO: $20.94 (104.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 6 6
      Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.60, BTN folds, SB calls $0.50, BB calls $0.40

      Flop: ($2.40) K K 6 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $1.60, CO folds, SB calls $1.60, BB folds

      I bet expecting Kx hands to call. One does call and I know for sure he has a Kx hand. The problem is he might hit his kicker along the way. If he raises me later on any of the streets he could be doing it with a full house or even a good Kx hand like AK, KQ etc. since he'd put me on a Kx hand with a weaker kicker. So how to play the rest of the hand?

      Turn: ($5.60) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4, SB calls $4

      River: ($13.60) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $10.20, SB raises to $34.02, Hero calls $7.18 and is all-in

      $48.36 pot ($2.41 rake)
      Final Board: K K 6 J 9
      SB showed K 9 and won $45.95 ($22.37 net)
      Hero mucked 6 6 and lost (-$23.58 net)

      He should also call you once with his medium pp-s. I would bet 4.5$ on the turn and overbet shove river. He would call me down with Kx hands and I would likely to get maximum value against trips. If he has there KJ I would loose my stack anyway, since I can´t really b/f river

      best regards,
