      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $25,00
      CO:
      $25,00

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.55 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T:heart: , K:diamond: . CO posts a blind of $0,25.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1,24, CO calls $0,99, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($2,83) 7:heart: , 5:heart: , 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2,00, CO calls $2,00.

      Turn: ($6,83) K:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6,00, CO calls $6,00.

        I bet here for protection

      River: ($18,83) 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $11,00, Hero calls $11,00.

        here I should blockbet or c/f or c/c, but I think with a pp like 88-TT would cb. What shuld Ido at river?

      Final Pot: $40,83


      is my line ok?

      I think you should stay away from KTo in MP, not a good hand.

      Also I would check the turn for pot control since your hand is really weak:

      - If he was on a draw, well the Kh is likely, and he is likely to have a better kicker as well.
      - If he wasn't on a draw, well you're either way in front with your KK, or way behind if he had trips/two pairs. No way you can get value from these situations...
      - if he flopped the flush...

      I would check/fold the river (but maybe this is too weak)

      Hi Cmas,

      till flop everything is fine. You don't need to raise KTo pre but it isn't bad either. On this turn i like to c/r in order to give my opponent the chance to float me and to protect as much as possible. As played a blockbet is not possible since you would commit yourself. Against this opponent ( high WTSD) I b/c the river.

      Best regards,
      TribunCaesar
