      SB: $2.80 (140 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.92 (146 bb)
      CO: $2.94 (147 bb)
      BTN: $4.19 (209.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K A
      CO raises to $0.06, BTN calls $0.06, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.26, CO folds, BTN calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.59) 5 9 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.38, BTN calls $0.38

      Turn: ($1.35) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.56, Hero calls $0.56

      River: ($2.47) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $2.47 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 5 9 3 J Q
      Hero showed K A and lost (-$1.20 net)
      BTN showed T T and won $2.38 ($1.18 net)

      Preflop: how is the sizing? I 3-bet preflop 3x+1 for each cold-caller (not sure that it's right).

      Flop: well, a c-bet :)

      Turn: I decided to play passively. My odds for a call are pretty decent here. According to my rough estimate, I would need some 33 cents on river to make the call profitable. Plus my over cards are worth something as well I guess.

      Preflop I'd make it a little bit bigger - $0.28-$0.3 considering that we are OOP and we are 150bb deep.

      Cbetting the flop is fine and you could go for $0.32.

      I prefer betting the turn rather than check/calling.
      We have decent equity, also could make him fold some PPs/floats and by check/calling we can't win the pot right here, and we can't check/call the river with A high.

      On the river checking with the intention to check/fold is fine.

      Oh, true! I didn't even think of my fold equity on the turn! (it's a scare card, if you don't know that I had only a backdoor FD)

      Thanks, I wouldn't notice this if I didn't ask.

      P.S.: Yeah, I was actually check/shoving on the river :f_biggrin:
