      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with K :heart: 9 :heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) K :club: 4 :spade: 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks
      Cant bet for value

      Turn: ($0.32) J :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      River: ($0.72) 7 :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.55, Hero folds
      I really doubt he bets a weaker hand than K9 here again. His bet size grew aswell, so even stronger.

      Hey Imimba,

      I think folding here is fine. In terms of value-betting, it's unlikely your opponent will bet with a worse hand.

      He could be bluffing though, especially since you checked back the flop so a call is also fine if you think your opponent is the sort to do this.

      It's a close spot, I don't think there is much in it - make your decision based on type of villain you think you are facing.
