      Hero (CO): $5.20 (104 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9 A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN folds, SB calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.35) K 5 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15

      Final Board: K 5 9 6 K
      SB mucked K J and lost (-$1.65 net)
      Hero showed 9 A and won $3.21 ($1.56 net)

      SB - ( $4.76 USD ) - VPIP: 17, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 12

      PF: I raise to steal

      Flop: SB bets less than 1/2 pot I called because I have 2nd pair top kicker and also the backdoor FD.

      Turn: When SB checks and I turn the nut flush, I decided to bet for my equity in e pot and build it up in case I hit a good River card.

      River: Only a FH can beat me here and e way he played e hand didn't seem like he had a FH. Only K9. I put him on a Kx which made me Trips and some worse PPs like TT-JJ and also 9x. So I decided to bet around 60% pot to get a call.

      Preflop raising is fine.

      When SB donks we have a standard call here with second pair. Our hand isn't good enough to raise here, and folding is way too weak.

      On the turn I think betting is fine. I don't expect him to check a better hand, and even if he check/calls Kx from times to times we still have some equity to improve.

      On the river we hit the flush and I like your bet.

      How much would you bet if the river was 2c?

      If it's a 2c, he's gonna have a hard time calling anything worse than Kx. It's between deciding if he has high % of having Kx or a naked club like Jc+. If he had e Kc, I think he would have bet again on e Turn. As such it leaves him only w the Tc/Jc/Qc.

      I believe he has more Kx than specifically e Tc/Jc/Qc. So I will bet around $0.45-$0.50 to induce some light calls from him.

      I don't really like this.

      If the river was the 2c I would rather bet around $1.2 here, since we are mostly getting called by flushes anyways, so we want to maximize our value against them and people do have hard folding in these spots.
