      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG+1: $12.63
      Hero (MP): $4.67
      CO: $11.24
      BTN: $25.03
      SB: $10.20
      BB: $0.96
      UTG: $11.47

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has Q:club: K:diamond:

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

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) 5:heart: K:club: 2:heart:
      Hero bets $0.54, CO calls $0.54

      Turn: ($1.83, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      Hero bets $1.30, CO calls $1.30

      River: ($4.43, 2 players) 3:club:
      Hero bets $2.53 and is all-in, CO calls $2.53

      Hero shows Q:club: K:diamond: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 26%, Flop 12%, Turn 7%)
      CO shows K:spade: A:heart: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 74%, Flop 88%, Turn 93%)
      CO wins $9.02


      Villain (241 sample):
      VP: 15, PR:10, 3B: 8, Fold to flop CB: 60, Fold to turn CB: 60

      Preflop: bet/fold. Looked at guys 3B statistics, and was 100% sure he would reraise me with pocket pair, AK, AQ, maybe even QK.
      Flop: hit top pair, with decent kicker, when he called i put him on the flush draw or K with Q, J maybe T kicker
      Turn: bet/fold
      River: put him on busted flush draw, or pair of kings with Q,J, T kicker.

      So please comment on my line of thought, play, what you would have done differently

      Hey Kaulaz,

      The riverplay depends if he is betting his bluffs when you check and/or valuebetting worse Kx for you. I think you get calls from kx anyway so it doesn't matter what is going on there. What you have to find out is if you can make more profit by check/calling here allowing him to bluff his busted draws.

      Also preflop it is a raise/fold, since u openraise preflop & not openbet, just to prevent any confusion

      Best regards,
      Gerv
