      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $0.46 (23 bb)
      MP: $2.04 (102 bb)
      CO: $1.51 (75.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.38 (19 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.06 (103 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K K
      MP raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.24, BB folds, MP calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.50) 9 2 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.50) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: ($1.50) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      $1.50 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: 9 2 5 A 7
      MP showed Q Q and lost (-$0.74 net)
      Hero mucked K K and won $1.40 ($0.66 net)

      Should I have reraised him on the flop instead of flat calling? What about my turn and river play. Was checking on the turn right? What about the river? Should I have bet for value? I was afraid he could be slow playing his ace top pair.

      preflop is fine.

      postflop... just get it in as soon as possible.
      why do you check? just bet/bet/bet, you want value from QQ-JJ (maybe even TT) and not give free cards to AK or random suited broadways which he may have from time to time.

      as it went A is the worst card possible on the deck and you don't have any more value there.
