      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 3 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: $14.63
      BB: $19.08
      Hero (BTN): $10.00

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

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

      Hero raises to $0.20, SB calls $0.15, fold

      Flop: ($0.50, 2 players) 9:spade: T:spade: K:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.40, SB calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.30, 2 players) K:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00, fold

      Hero wins $1.22

      Just a question about the bet sizing on the turn here. How big should my bet here be? I feel like by betting $1, I actually forced out some weaker hands like maybe Tx or 9x or maybe some sort of straight draw that would call a smaller bet.

      Would it be better here to bet just a little over half pot size, like $0.70 or so?

      Preflop raising is ok.

      On the flop betting is fine and your sizing is ok.

      On the turn I like your bet. The card is good for him, because now it's less likely for us to have a K.
      I don't really think that 9 is calling the turn anyways, so we want to maximize our value and I really don't think that his range will change whether we bet $0.8 or $1.
