      Hand converted with online hand converter:


      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, K.
      Hero raises to $0.30, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.30, 5 folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.95) Q, 9, T (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, MP1 calls $0.60, BB calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.75) 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, MP1 checks.

      River: ($2.75) J (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.10, MP1 raises to $4.20, BB folds, Hero calls $2.00.

      Final Pot: $11.05.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, king high(Kc Kh).
      MP1 shows a straight, ace high(Kd Ad).

      MP1 wins with a straight, ace high(Kd Ad).

      This was an interesting yet very disappointing hand.

      Agains, I had a gutshot + overpair and the bet on the flop was standard.

      But... 2 player called and the 8 came out. I slowed down immediately because I thought that at least one of these guys could easily have a Jack.

      But no one did any betting here. I was very surprised.

      But on the river... That J gave me the second nuts. All the guys with one jack is now no good.

      So I just decided to bet out big to get paid off... but guy right after me raises.

      The only hand that can beat me is AK and I have 2 blockers.

      There was a big possibility that my bet on the flop chased AK away as well....

      Was my bet and the call on the river OK?

      As played I'd just shove the river.

      A lot of players don't even like folding when there's a straight on the board so they may call for a split (and we win of course).

      As played, we can't really raise/fold as villain can do it with other Kx and AK is rarely in their range.
