      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:diamond: , J:diamond:
      7 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, BB calls $0,50.

      Flop: ($1,50) 2:diamond: , 9:club: , 9:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,10, BB calls $1,10.

      Turn: ($3,70) 8:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero raises $3,40 (All-In), BB folds.



      Should I just check/fold from the Turn till the river? Even with a FD? I can give myself 12 outs (FD + Pairing Kings) but often this is a situation where I am often way-behind (against trips) or way-ahead.

      Any suggestions?

      i dont think this is a way behind/way ahead situation. It would have been if the board had been 99K...

      contibetting here is fine as with a paired board there is only a very small chance he hit the 9, and i cant see anyone calling a steal with a 2.

      i would have check/folded the turn, but the way you played seems to have paid off.

      I wouldn't try to conti bet on the flop. You tried to steal on the preflop and the villain called so you should just check/fold after the flop and save the money. Lets see what judges advice.

      I think you always have to make cont. bet.
      Probably I would also shove the turn.

      Steal raise is fine, but can easily be 4bb big.

      Cbet on the flop is mandatory.

      2nd barrel on the turn would be too much if you hadn't got that flush draw. Facing additional 9 outs to impreove on the river you can shove it easily.
