      SB: $5.27 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 12, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 106

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is MP with K :diamond: K :heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.20, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.20, 1 fold, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.62) 7 :spade: 5 :diamond: J :club: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, BTN folds well, no draws... I cant bluff raise, and maybe too thin for value. Villain doesnt look like a maniac

      Turn: ($1.22) Q :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero ? Easy bet for value, but how much, 0.97$?

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Postflop: As played calling flop is fine and on the turn I wouldn't bet too big, maybe 1/2-2/3 pot. His range is a Jx, TT, 99, 88 maybe 7x and of course sets/2p that want to ck/raise. So since we are targeting a 2nd pair type hand and we'd like to possibly get two more streets from it I'd bet smaller. If you just want one street because you aren't sure if he can call two small ones just bet bigger like your proposed bet.
