      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $1.97
      SB:
      $3.46
      BB:
      $0.94
      UTG1:
      $3.88
      UTG2:
      $1.57
      MP1:
      $1.41
      MP2:
      $3.98
      MP3 (Hero):
      $1.89
      CO:
      $0.89


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q, Q.
      UTG1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, 4 folds, UTG1 calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.27) 8, K, K (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.27) 5 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10.

      River: ($0.47) 5 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.44, Hero calls $0.44.

      Final Pot: $1.35.

      First off, as played, is my turn and river call correct in this situation?

      Also, assuming i played it differently and cbet this flop and he called, should I barrel turn and check behind river? (Assuming he plays passively - alternatively, what is a better line to take here?)

      Hi

      1. The top card is paired, it's 33% less likely for villain to have a King
      2. I think this is a standard situation with 2nd pair where you have position and check back with the intention of calling two streets.

      What usually happens is that most fishes tend to bluff too often in such spots, making it a really easy call T call R spot.

      Thanks.
