      Party, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      MP2: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): $31.51 (126 bb)
      UTG+1: $10.16 (40.6 bb)
      SB: $27.52 (110.1 bb)
      MP3: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $25 (100 bb)
      BB: $9.34 (37.4 bb)
      MP1: $28.88 (115.5 bb)
      BTN: $24.50 (98 bb)

      < 50 hands on all

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K K
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, 5 folds, SB calls $0.65, BB calls $0.50
      Pretty much everyone else had been open raising 3bb, and when I O/R 4bb, I got a chorus of folds, so I decided to join the trend.

      Flop: ($2.25) Q Q J (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $1.07, SB folds, BB calls $1.07

      Turn: ($4.39) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($4.39) 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      I was surprised at villain's hand.
      I think I was giving him too much credit, but AQ, AJ and even Ax were too likely IMHO to go ramming through. By the river, I figured he would have bet either of the first two, so I figured he had Ax and was worried I had a better A.

      $4.39 pot ($0.21 rake)
      Final Board: Q Q J A 3
      Hero showed K K and won $4.18 ($2.36 net)
      BB showed J K and lost (-$1.82 net)

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Seems like new limit for ya? :P Congrats. :)

      About the hand I'd say that KT is also possible cause you don't block all 4 Kings nor of course we wont exclude Ax hands which may draw there for GS so I don't even mind your play but that's true that not many worse hands pay you the turn. Though I'd myself pick a thin value-bet on the river whilst he checks and I would assume him betting very often Ax hands there at least smallish the same for Qx. We are talking about bet of max $1,50.

      Best Regards.
