      BB: $0.93 (18.6 bb)
      UTG: $1.19 (23.8 bb)
      Hero (MP): $6.52 (130.4 bb)
      CO: $1.51 (30.2 bb)
      BTN: $5.15 (103 bb)
      SB: $1.14 (22.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K A
      UTG calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.67) K 7 J (3 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.35, CO calls $0.35, UTG calls $0.35

      Turn: ($1.72) 3 (3 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($1.72) 4 (3 players)
      UTG bets $0.64 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.64, CO folds

      $3.00 pot ($0.15 rake)
      Final Board: K 7 J 3 4
      UTG showed 2 6 and lost (-$1.19 net)
      Hero mucked K A and won $2.85 ($1.66 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.55 net)

      Both Villains unknown.

      PF: I don't mind getting it in against anyone of them.

      Flop: C-bet TPTK for value and to get it in on later streets regardless of any card basically because of SPR. Maybe bigger bet like $0.40 will be better?

      Turn: Flush becomes possible, since I'm getting it in regardless, I decide to check and keep all their bluffs and weaker hands in. And hopefully get their money in on the River when they believe that I'm weak.

      River: UTG does the job for me.

      I'm not sure if my thought process on the Turn is okay? Any comments?

      Preflop you can just go for 3bb considering the limper's stack.

      On the flop I'd bet $0.5.

      I prefer shoving the turn.
      By checking we are giving them the chance to take a free card and there are a lot of river cards that we won't like.

      On the river calling is fine.
