      BTN: $2.31 (115.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $5.60 (280 bb)
      BB: $1.07 (53.5 bb)
      UTG: $1.44 (72 bb)
      MP: $1.74 (87 bb)
      CO: $1.25 (62.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      UTG calls $0.02, MP raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.07, BB folds, UTG calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.26) K 4 2 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.08, MP folds, Hero raises to $0.22, UTG calls $0.14

      Turn: ($0.70) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.37, UTG calls $0.37

      River: ($1.44) 9 (2 players)

      $1.44 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: K 4 2 T 9
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$0.67 net)
      UTG mucked and won $1.39 ($0.72 net)

      Think I made mistakes on every street? Lol.

      PF: 3-bet?

      Flop: Raise bigger? And fold to 3-bet?

      Turn: Bet bigger? Or even shove because of bigger raise on Flop.

      River: Shove half pot when 3rd heart lands, really not sure where I'm standing now so decided to play it safe and fold.

      This is the type of spot where it is difficult to give a good answer without any info on villain.

      Generally when you post a hand you should give as much info you have on villain: stats, notes you have, timing tell etc....

      Hi Dublinmax, only has 2 hands on Villain so unknown, no notes, timing tells etc.

      I FEEL it's a close call/fold w/o any reads. But of course I don't even know if I'm doing the right stuffs. Lol

      ok so let's try w/o stats.

      MP seems fishy givent his stack size. So does UTG.
      So pre flop that's certainly a 3B. You can expect to get called by Mp and maybe even by both.

      As played on the flop. I think we have the option between donking or x/raising.

      Donking because we would hate it if it checked through giving free cards.
      I think x/r is also good if we think MP will CBet often on that board. Also since we have Kh it is not too bad.

      I would raise bigger OTF for sure. 0.26/0.28 should do the job. Remember villain is a fish so go big for value. He will call you anyway w Kx and his FDs.

      If you raise bigger OTF then you can probably shove the turn with a slight overbet (stack sizes are akward).

      Hope that helps

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Preflop: Could easily raise it for value here even vs most likely loose stacks.

      As played
      Postflop: Check/Raise the flop bigger and vs his stack could just ship the turn. :)

      Best Regards.
