      BTN: $10.10 (101 bb)
      SB: $8.91 (89.1 bb)
      BB: $24.36 (243.6 bb)
      UTG: $6.42 (64.2 bb)
      Hero (MP): $16.65 (166.5 bb)
      CO: $16.55 (165.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K A
      UTG calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30, UTG calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) 7 7 K (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80, UTG calls $0.80

      Turn: ($3.65) 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($3.65) T (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $1.20, BB calls $1.20, UTG calls $1.20

      When both called flop I'm kind of suspicious. Turn I'm not sure if I'm even good when there's a good chance one of them has 7x, so I check to look at their actions on river (since I could save some money as I close the action on the river).

      When both check the river I'm sure the best hand they can have is Kx. They can have some PPs too. Is 33% pot way too small here? PPs probably fold to a bigger bet but Kx most likely calls 50% and the fact that UTG is a fish he might call behind with weak hands too?

      Main questions are, should we value bet the turn? Should we bet 50% pot or bigger on the river?

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that you should definitely bet/fold the turn for value versus Kx and other pairs. I would suspect that most 7x hands would raise the turn.

      As played we can bet larger on the river as no Kx is folding. I'd bet at least $2.5 especially after we checked the turn.
