      Known players:

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:club: , K:spade:
      Hero raises to $1,00, 2 folds, CO calls $1,00, BU calls $1,00, SB folds, BB calls $0,75.

      Flop: ($4,10) 9:diamond: , J:heart: , K:heart: (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2,75, CO folds, BU calls $2,75, BB folds.

      Turn: ($9,60) 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6,00, BU calls $6,00.

      What would be the correct line here?
      River: ($21,60) T:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $8,00, BU raises to $16,50 (All-In), Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $37,60

      Bet on the turn is obligatory to protect against draws, right?

      However, river card is very ugly. However, TPTK may be still good but if we check, we may expect a bet size of which we may not like. Therefore a block bet. After we are raised, we have approx. $6 left. But I cannot see to be ahead (and then it would not be block bet).

      I bet more on flop and turn, this way I have a much easier decision for my stack seeing the pot is already that big on the river
      I c/c that river if I bet bigger but as played I c/f it

      dont see a hand he calls flop and turn with that u beat now
      every reasonable K beats u, KQ has straight, KJ-K9 has 2 pair, flush hits,...

      I would bet 3$ on the flop
      8$ on the turn
      You have less than potsize left, either shove river or c/f.
      Since this is the worse card that could come then I don´t mind c/f.
