      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: $11.62
      BB: $10.00
      Hero (UTG): $17.72
      BTN: $15.70 44/8 - 100 hands

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has K:spade: J:heart:

      Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) Q:heart: 6:diamond: 9:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.75, 2 players) J:spade:
      Hero bets $0.30, BTN calls $0.30

      River: ($1.35, 2 players) 9:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.29, Hero calls $1.29

      Opening KJo from c/o is fine taken that fish is on button.
      Fish Folds to Cbets around 50% that means it is staying in pots with every decent chance. Af - 1.9

      Flop - Although I have monster draw, I do not like to Cbet against fishes that has position because they call too much.

      Turn - great card where I beat a lot of villains range.
      Cbetting small to potcontroll.

      River - betting mycelf could run into straights, 2 pair or FH.
      So I go for bluffcatch (78, JT) because flush missed and I beat TT, 88-77

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Why do you think you have a monster draw here? You have a rather weak draw in this spot.
      Having this said, what's your plan when you check the flop - check/call or check/fold?

      Don't really like betting small on the turn - plenty of worse hands that could call us here so I'd bet around $0.6.

      Just bet the river yourself. If you check/call you are still running into his better hands, but he is going to check back his weaker hands like Jx, which are going to call us here.
