      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, K.
      MP2 calls $0.25, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.62, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.37.

      Flop: ($1.49) 2, Q, 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, MP2 calls $0.90.

      Turn: ($3.29) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.10, MP2 calls $2.10.

      River: ($7.49) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, MP2 calls $3.50.

      Final Pot: $14.49.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and eights(K K).
      MP2 shows a flush, ace high(5 7).

      MP2 wins with a flush, ace high(5 7).

      he is unknown.I was multi tabling so I didnt notice he was limping ,so my raise size was bad I think.
      if I knew he was limping,I would have raised 1.1~1.2.
      I couldnt guess he has backdoor so I bet on the river ,shouldnt bet on the river?

      Your raise preflop is wayy too small. You're OOP and he's limping, punish him! Raise to around 1.25 preflop.

      Bet bigger on the flop, and slightly bigger on the turn. On the river betting makes little sense, what are you hoping to get called by? Either c/f or c/c.
