      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 8 Players - Hand History Converter

      CO: $33.30
      BTN: $16.60
      SB: $34.20
      Hero (BB): $26.20
      UTG: $24.75
      UTG+1: $28.60
      MP1: $26.50
      MP2: $23.90

      Pre-Flop: K:heart: A:diamond: dealt to Hero (BB)
      4 folds, CO calls $0.25, BTN folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero raises to $1.25, CO calls $1, SB folds

      Flop: ($2.75) 9:spade: K:club: 2:club: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $2, CO raises to $4, Hero calls $2

      Turn: ($10.75) 2:diamond: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $8, CO calls $8

      River: ($26.75) 5:spade: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $12.95 and is All-In, CO calls $12.95

      Seems like I'm overplaying TPTK. What to do on turn and river? Flop play is OK, right?
      Many times I've seen flop minraises with flush draw-s. probably with intention to represent strength and I won't bet then on the turn because of that. So I though about it while playing and fired the turn also.

      Raise to 1.5 preflop. (4bb + 2callers)

      Flop is fine, hate minbets :evil:

      turn: check/call or check/reraise (depending the hand u put villain on)

      River is a check. No worse hand will pay you off.

      Stats on villain would be handy to evaluate this hand, especially his AF.

      Hi Nitrub,

      The minraise may mean a set, but he may also have a draw or a pure bluff. You have to think about which sets (or better hands) he may have:
      22 is very unlikely given the second 2 on the turn.
      99: wouln't he openraise it? I think so...
      KK: I don't think he limp/calls KK ever.

      Can he have 2 Pair? limp/calling with K9 doesnt make much sense; and the same is true for K2,92.

      Hence, I don't see many reasonable hands that beat us. However, he may have a K (AK,KQ) or a flush draw. Given this range, I like your bet on the tunr and also the river play is fine.

      I would be more inclined to play the river c/c, as a worse hand should never call but may bluff if given the chance.
