      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with K :diamond: Q :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.40, MP calls $0.40, 2 folds, SB calls $0.35, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.30) K :club: 9 :spade: A :heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP checks

      Turn: ($1.30) 2 :diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.65, MP calls $0.65, SB folds

      River: ($2.60) 7 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $1.50, Hero folds

      I am not sure betting the turn is a good idea. There is value only from weaker Kx. Maybe could have just bluffcatched one street.

      Hi,

      I would prefer most of the times c-bet and then checking it down. Mixing it up with KQ is sometimes fine, but since you can´t c/c twice I would not prefer taking that line too often.
      Turn bet is fine- consider pot odds I would likely call river (although fold is also fine)- just often players should bet with Ax hands, so that makes me think he has there more often QJ, JT, 54s than Ax hands

      best regards,

      Hello Avatars91,

      I like your play here, I would have played the same way. Well played, can't really see him bluffing that often there. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
