      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: $4.30
      BB: $10.00
      UTG: $14.28
      Hero (CO): $19.26
      BTN: $10.09

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:spade: T:spade:

      UTG calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, fold, SB calls $0.35, fold, fold

      Flop: ($1.00, 2 players) A:spade: T:diamond: 8:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.60, fold

      Hero shows K:spade: T:spade: (One Pair, Tens)
      Hero wins $0.94

      I'm not sure whether or not I should bet the flop here. I have a ton of showdown value, and the boad is very dry, so I'm not sure there's too many worse hands that are going to call. Plus it's not too bad if a Q or J comes, because I will at least have a gutshot to go along with my pair.

      So maybe it's better to check behind here?

      I'd make it potsize preflop.

      I'd just cbet the flop. Rather keep the initiative to me, than checking and calling a bet.
      There are a lot of worse hands that could call us, also we don't mind if he folds something like Q2s, and we have some backdoors as well.
      Also could see the river for free.
