      no hud, speed. villain unknown.

      Dealt to Hero K:club: K:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.75) 8:diamond: T:diamond: 6:spade:

      Hero bets $0.45, BTN calls $0.45

      TURN ($1.65) 8:diamond: T:diamond: 6:spade: 8:spade:

      RIVER ($3.85) 8:diamond: T:diamond: 6:spade: 8:spade: T:club:

      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.92, Hero calls $1.92

      Hero shows K:club: K:diamond:
      (Pre 86%, Flop 91.6%, Turn 79.5%)

      BTN shows K:spade: Q:spade:
      (Pre 14%, Flop 8.4%, Turn 20.5%)

      Hero wins $7.18

      Flop bet is standard cbet. Should I increase it to 50c?

      Turn is good card but since it doesn't change much I bet less because I thought he has some random draw QJ, J9, Q9, FD, or some Tx which I will get value until the river.

      River comes very bad. I did put him on some kind of draw but at this point I wasn't sure what to do...he has only pot size left. I won't get any value from betting and I can't bet/fold. I made a frustration call since I could beat some missed draws or some misplayed JJ, QQ.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why are we cbetting so low on such a connected board?

      I would bet both flop and turn on the larger side, 3/4 pot at least.

      As played I don't mind ck/calling river as he could try to bluff hands and a valuebet would not be that great as we only really target 77/JJ and since we bet so small villain can have quite a few draws.
