      BB ($10)
      UTG ($15.65)

      Flop: ($2.30) 10, Q, 2 (2 players)

      Turn: ($5.10) 9 (2 players)

      Total pot: $29.54 | Rake: $1.33

      Results below:

      Hero had K, K (straight, King high).
      UTG had A, K (straight, Ace high).
      Outcome: UTG won $28.21

      Was kinda of a needle to see his AK, cos I wouldnt put him on that hand after my turn-bet.

      My River bet was meant for 2 pairs, lower straights and sets.

      Is this just a cooler, or could I have done something differently?

      I like your play here except the river.

      I would just shove there to maximize my value against his range. I doubt he has us beat here (AK only beat us) and it is quite unlikely to have this hand considering the action on the previous streets.
