      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      BB = ($35.85)
      MP2 = ($46.95)
      MP3 = ($65.00)
      CO = ($6.45)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      MP2 calls $0.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.25, 2 folds, MP2 calls $1.75.

      Flop: ($5.25) 9, Q, 7 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $3.00, MP2 calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($11.25) 6 (2 players)

      River: ($25.25) K (2 players)
      MP2 bets $5.50, Hero calls $5.50.

      Final Pot: $36.25.
      Results follow:

      MP2 shows a pair of queens (J Q)
      Hero shows three of a kind, kings (K K)

      Hero wins with three of a kind, kings (K K).

      I really thought about raising this but i thought he could easily have TJ. Im up against an unknown opponent and he could also pay me off with two pair. is flat calling too weak here? tnx!
