      Preflop: ($0.14, 8 players) Hero is BB with K:heart: A:heart:
      5 folds, BTN raises to $0.24, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.70, BTN calls $0.46

      Flop: K:spade: 9:diamond: 8:diamond: ($1.44, 2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, BTN calls $1.00

      Turn: 9:club: ($3.44, 2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BTN calls $2.50

      River: T:spade: ($8.44, 2 players)
      Hero bets $3.80, BTN raises to $5.80 (all-in), Hero calls $2.00 (all-in)

      I decided to bet instead of checking because I thought I could still get money from weaker K... Is this a good play or I should check-fold?

      Hi MrBeast,

      Preflop: Why do we 3-bet so small? 7 BB vs 2,5 BB raise? We should make it at least 8 BB but I'd prefer 9-10 BB here (OOP)

      Postflop: You should definitely bet there on the river but why leave behind 2 when you can easily shove? We are clearly not folding after the shove so what we do is give him a chance to save $2 when he has a worse hand and we pay him off everytime he has a better one.
