      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $13.80 (138 bb)
      MP: $9.34 (93.4 bb)
      CO: $9.93 (99.3 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      UTG raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.05, BB folds, UTG calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.20) J J 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.27, UTG calls $1.27

      Turn: ($4.74) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.67, UTG calls $1.67

      River: ($8.08) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.01 and is all-in, UTG calls $6.01

      $20.10 pot ($0.90 rake)
      Final Board: J J 8 K T
      UTG showed K J and won $19.20 ($9.20 net)
      Hero showed K A and lost (-$10 net)

      Opponent is 50/50 in just 8-9 hands, seemed fishy.

      Flop cbet is i think ok (i have FE+equity). But on the turn, i had no clue what to do. Worse Kx can call me, if he floated with like KQ, maybe a gutshot can call me (like AQ, but not all that likely). I decided to bet really small, so a QQ can also call me, and then push the river, but i wasnt sure if anything worse can call me on the river.

      Preflop 3bet for value is good.

      On the flop I like your bet.

      I think betting the turn is fine and I like your sizing.
      The other option is to check/call if you think he floats a lot, but without information betting is better since this is a card on which we would love to bluff as well.

      On the river I think we can check/fold.
      Yeah, we have TPTK, but I can hardly see worse hands calling us here.
