      Hey Kalimann,

      KJs is really borderline UTG on 7-handed table. Might be ok depending on who is at the table, but folding would be ok.

      I would bet larger on flop + turn for value. Worse can call, you miss value by betting so small.

      River bet doesn't make a lot of sense because it is difficult for worse to call and all flush-draws got there. I'd seriously think about just check/folding river.
