      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): 176.52 BB
      SB: 144.32 BB (VPIP: 33.33, PFR: 33.33, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 3)
      BB: 233.34 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 3)
      UTG: 150.3 BB (VPIP: 5.56, PFR: 5.56, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)
      MP: 54 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 1)
      CO: 161.88 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 1)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:spade: K:heart:

      UTG raises to 2.5 BB, MP calls 2.5 BB, fold, Hero raises to 8 BB, fold, BB calls 7 BB, UTG calls 5.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (27 BB, 3 players) 7:diamond: T:heart: 6:diamond:
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets 12 BB, BB calls 12 BB, fold

      Turn: (51 BB, 2 players) 2:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 24 BB, BB calls 24 BB

      River: (99 BB, 2 players) 8:spade:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      I guess I could sqeeze larger, but since I am vs fish IP I did it this way.

      I am not sure if I have value on river? I could only get call by JJ, QQ, and when he cold calls 3bet I think he has mostly 99-QQ, AK, and considering that JJ might fold, I guess I dont have value.

      Preflop: That's not a very good reason to squeeze smaller. Just make it 10bb here. You want to go for max value and discourage multi-way action which is almost always bad if you are the 3-better.

      Flop: I would bet larger here. You are deep after all, Maybe 17bb.

      Turn: 2/3 pot is good.

      River: KK is probably a check but I would bet AA here.
