      MP1: $4 (100 bb)
      BTN: $6.01 (150.3 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): $4.09 (102.3 bb)
      CO: $2.04 (51 bb)
      BB: $4 (100 bb)
      MP2: $4.06 (101.5 bb) - VPIP: 81, PFR: 19, 3B: 0, AF: 0.69, Hands: 27
      MP3: $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $9.43 (235.8 bb)
      UTG+1: $4 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K A
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.16, 5 folds

      Flop: ($0.38) J Q 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks
      This board hits his calling range, so I'm check/folding. My overcard and gutshot odds might not be clean.

      Turn: ($0.38) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, MP2 calls $0.20
      He probably won't fold Qx, pair+flush draw, so should I bet more on the bigger side? Something like 2/3 pot and fold to a raise?

      River: ($0.78) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.44, MP2 folds
      Ideal sizing here? Not sure if he's calling 1/2 bet with Qx here.

      $0.78 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: J Q 9 T T
      Hero mucked K A and won $0.75 ($0.39 net)
      MP2 mucked and lost (-$0.36 net)

      Hey JohnDoe1313,

      Your decision on the flop to check/fold is fine seeing as you only actually have 3 outs which are guaranteed to be clean. Calling would be fine too, but you can potentially end up in tricky situations.

      I agree with your turn evaluation. You can probably bet like $0.30-$0.35 or so because your opponent will call with a flush draw any 8x or Kx.

      I think your river sizing is fine. He may fold a Qx whatever size you bet here. On the other hand there is value from Kx, 8x, and maybe stuff like A:dT.
