      BTN: $6.49 (64.9 bb)
      SB: $21.36 (213.6 bb)
      BB: $9.30 (93 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $19.32 (193.2 bb)
      MP: $20.55 (205.5 bb)
      CO: $17.07 (170.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K Q
      Hero raises to $0.30, MP folds, CO calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) 2 5 K (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60, BB folds

      Turn: ($2.15) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, CO calls $1.20

      River: ($4.55) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.90, Hero folds

      Villain is 10/0 over 11 hands.

      Pretty standard open pre flop. Also a pretty standard value bet on the flop. However, considering it's 3way and there's a flush draw on the board, could I have made it bigger here, say $0.70-$0.80 or so?

      On the turn, when he calls the flop he can have some Kx, flush draws and pocket pairs in his range. If he has a pocket pair with a heart, he'll probably call another bet. If he has a K he also probably won't fold. So I decided to bet again for value, with the intention of folding to a raise and check/folding on the river if he calls my turn bet.

      Any other way to play this?

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop can be larger 3 way especially with a fish. 70c would be the min I'd bet.

      As played turn is thin at best. After all he called CO vs UTG and then called a cbet with a fish behind. What really worse can he have there? Some KJ suited? 2 combos?

      Hi Bogdan, thanks!

      Yes, pretty much some KJs and hands like TT with a heart. I agree this is very thin, so judging from your comment I suppose this is too thin?

      Bogdan, are you suggesting the optimal turn line is check/fold given CO's play with fish behind?

      Yes, I do not think we have enough value in a bet there.

      Villain also has slowplayed sets in his range along with potential AK and plenty of flushes.
