      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $7.66
      Hero (UTG): $25.00
      CO: $29.23
      BTN: $31.17
      SB: $54.83

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero has K:diamond: K:spade:

      Hero raises to $0.75, fold, BTN calls $0.75, fold, fold

      Flop: ($1.85, 2 players) 9:club: 4:spade: 9:spade:
      Hero bets $1.32, fold


      Since villain is unknown is it better to open fold? or is it still a decent hand to open raise?

      As played, standart Cbet flop, turn for value/protection, check river to induce bluff
      from small PP and pot control vs flush, A2, 33, KT, TT.
      Should I fold to a bigger size bet?

      Hello 13BlackCats,

      Guess wrong hand. :P What makes you think that it's gonna gain you more value in those spots? What's the sample you have on him?

      Best Regards.

      very standard open

      pp won't bluff the river, c/f or blockbet for thin value from worse Kx which he may easily have in his call sb range

      What's the reason for playing Check/Call on the river?
