      BTN: $8.12 (81.2 bb)
      Hero (MP): $12.27 (122.7 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $45.34 (453.4 bb)
      UTG: $10.73 (107.3 bb)
      SB: $9.07 (90.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.90) 7 4 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.55, SB calls $0.55

      Turn: ($2) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.40, SB calls $1.40

      $4.80 pot ($0.24 rake)
      Final Board: 7 4 7 5 J
      Hero showed J K and lost (-$2.35 net)
      SB showed K K and won $4.56 ($2.21 net)

      SB is LAGy under 100 hands, I think I played this hand correctly, I think on the River I can still get called by worse pairs?

      Hey BigAl123456,

      It is not necessary to open KJo pre-flop from MP. It usually works best if there are tight players to act behind you or fish in the blinds.

      I think cbetting this board is fine, it's going to be tough for BB to defend such a dry board, and you have equity vs his range.

      Turn check back is fine, villain is probably not folding a lot of the hands he called flop with OOP on a 5 turn.

      River I'd bet for value, but I'd bet smaller, maybe half pot or so. Villain's range is pretty weak (even though he has KK in this case).
