      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $5.00
      SB: $10.15
      BB: $36.61
      UTG: $18.93
      UTG+1: $3.52
      Hero (UTG+2): $29.87
      MP: $7.67
      MP+1: $36.29
      CO: $9.65

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:heart: K:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, MP calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold


      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) 3:diamond: 5:club: 5:heart:
      Hero bets $0.40, MP calls $0.40

      I bet small because the flop is so dry and want to get some value from weaker hands.

      Turn: ($1.55, 2 players) J:heart:
      Hero bets $1.00, MP calls $1.00

      Flush draw pops up, but I'm still not scared so I make about a 2/3 pot size raise.

      River: ($3.55, 2 players) 6:heart:
      Hero checks, MP bets $2.54, Hero calls $2.54

      This guy had shown lots of river aggression and tried making bluffs on "supposed" scare cards. For example, he tries to rep a flush draw here even though it makes no sense...

      MP shows T:heart: 7:heart: (Flush, Jack High) (Pre 19%, Flop 6%, Turn 18%)
      Hero mucks K:heart: K:club: (Two Pair, Kings and Fives) (Pre 81%, Flop 94%, Turn 82%)
      MP wins $8.24

      Owait... =/

      yeah this was kind of a sick hand but thoughts about how I played it regardless of results? Thanks.

      Hello FlashDavin,

      Preflop: From UTG I'd still open 4bb.
      Postflop: But well, how many worse hands is he willing to come up even on the river? I'd rather Bet/Fold it cause he will have a lot of PPs in his range which rather Call than bluff.

      Best Regards.
