      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with K :diamond: K :spade:

      Turn: ($10.70) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.00, CO calls $5

      River: ($20.70) 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      We don't know much about these opponents.

      Really not sure if I played it well given our stack sizes.

      Preflop: could have made it a bit bigger because of the deep MP. At least ~1.50$
      Flop: Do I go broke if UTG pushes? Hard to tell, really. Would be a tough decision.
      Turn: Could maybe have bet ~4.00$ and folded to a push? The board is so scary.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Seems to be fine and I doubt that you can change much, even on the turn it's kinda close cause way too many hands have us beat. :D

      Best Regards.

      1) When the effective stack sizes are rather deep, we generally still don't change our openraise/3Bet sizes all that much, do we? I am a bit bothered by the fact that our opponents are getting much greater odds for setmining, or even calling with other speculative hands.

      2) Could the turn even be checked behind for pot control? If yes, what is our plan for the river, if villain bets 1/2 on a blank? I guess we can still call because he may be vBetting a worse pair.

      Cbetting turn should be standard here, for protection and for value against Straight and Flush draws. You could also get called by some Jx hands.

      Yes, we do but that also depends what kind of opponent and etc, vs regular you may look your hand more easier to read if you 3bet too huge.

      Rather bet the turn instead turning it into bluff-catcher which will be difficult to call down the turn & river. Also at least we can pick the sizing ourselves.
