      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (7 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

      Hero (SB) ($50)
      BB ($50.75)
      UTG ($25.20)
      MP1 ($119.25)
      MP2 ($44.35)
      CO ($12.25)
      Button ($26.05)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K
      4 folds, Button calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.25, 1 fold, Button calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5) K, 7, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, Button calls $4

      Turn: ($13) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $10, Button calls $10

      River: ($33) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $33.75 (All-In), Button calls $9.80 (All-In)

      Total pot: $52.60 | Rake: $2.60

      On the river it was anyway pot commited all-in.

      On the flop, I assumed him FD or K X.

      But when he called me on the turn, I thought he had KxQh,Jh or 7 something.

      It was hard to make right decision. How can I make my move better?

      You have to protect your hand and you want value with flushdraws and Kx hands.
      I woudl played the hand the same way, if opponent flopped flush, then he played his hand perfict and nothing you can do about it, but otgher times you stack another top pair hand.
