      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 127.15 BB
      Hero (UTG): 282.7 BB
      MP: 101.5 BB
      CO: 39.25 BB
      BTN: 226.85 BB
      SB: 40 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:club: K:heart:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB, fold, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (10.5 BB, 3 players) 9:heart: 4:diamond: 5:heart:
      Hero checks, MP bets 7 BB, BTN calls 7 BB, Hero calls 7 BB

      Turn: (31.5 BB, 3 players) 2:club:
      Hero checks, MP bets 18 BB, BTN calls 18 BB, Hero raises to 51.75 BB, fold, fold

      Hero shows K:club: K:heart: (One Pair, Kings)
      Hero wins 81.25 BB

      MP 5 hands
      BTN 30 hands, VP 30, PFR 20

      Is it better bet/fold here? I usually check call 3way, because the guy IP usually try to steal the pot.
      Is my raise ok on turn? I think BTN would already raise on flop or turn with set, and 2 Pair is unlikely, so he might have 9x, TT, JJ, draws, and I was more afraid on flop of MP because he was leading and because he bets 50% only on turn (no protection) I don't put him on strong made hand, so I wanted to protect against draws and put more money in.
      If BTN would push, I would fold for sure, but if MP pushes would I be commited?

      Hi Mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why are we playing scared poker with our hand?

      Simply bet the flop or if you check go for a ck/raise for pure value. No reason to slowplay this hand and lose a ton of value.

      As played at least we check/raised the turn so that's fine.
