      €0.02/€0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB = (€4.44)
      BB = (€9.90)
      UTG1 = (€3.81)
      UTG2 = (€7.73)
      MP1 (Hero) = (€7.51)
      MP2 = (€5.14)
      MP3 = (€3.51)
      CO = (€5.00)
      BU = (€4.57)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, A.
      2 folds, Hero raises to €0.20, MP2 calls €0.20, MP3 folds, CO calls €0.20, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: (€0.67) K, K, K (3 players)
      Hero bets €0.40, MP2 calls €0.40, CO calls €0.40.

      Turn: (€1.87) 8 (3 players)
      Hero bets €0.95, MP2 calls €0.95, CO folds.

      River: (€3.77) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets €3.59, Hero calls €3.59.

      Final Pot: €10.95.


      MP2 shows four of a kind, kings(A K).
      Hero shows a full-house, kings full of aces(A A).

      MP2 wins with four of a kind, kings(A K).

      I think he could play any premium pocket pair or maybe even any Jx type of hand that he decided to float the flop with like this. Kx is such a narrow range to put him on...

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I'd bet $0.45.

      I think we can bet like $1.1 on the turn.

      I don't like check/calling the river.
      Since the board is KKKxx and people do have trouble folding on this kind of boards I'd just shove here for value.
