      Hero (BB): $9.09 (181.8 bb)
      UTG: $1.20 (24 bb)
      MP: $3.15 (63 bb)
      CO: $2.35 (47 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.15, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, MP calls $0.45

      Flop: ($1.22) Q J K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, MP raises to $2.55 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.70

      River: ($6.32) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $6.32 pot ($0.31 rake)
      Final Board: Q J K K 8
      Hero mucked K K and won $6.01 ($2.86 net)
      MP showed A A and lost (-$3.15 net)


      Villain is 22/19/0 over 95 hands

      PF: I went for 4x on my 3-bet because I assume he's fishy because of his stack and he will call either 3x or 4x. So just went for pure value.

      Flop: Very wet flop, but because of stack sizes I still went for 2/3 bet so I can shove remaining $1.70 into $2.92 pot on the Turn. Maybe I should just bet potsize for protection and it's okay to shove less than 1/2 pot on Turn?

      And nice to hit Quad Kings on Turn!

      Hi cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I wouldn't worry much about protection here. At the same time it's not likely villain will call with random hands so our bet size won't matter much. The only hand that may stick around (or shove) if we bet less is AQ/AJhh. The rest like AK, QQ, JJ, AA will just go with it.
