      do you think this was ok? I know this probably seems a stupid question to a lot of you but I'd like a second opinion

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $11.57
      MP1:
      $4.18
      MP2(Hero):
      $10.00
      MP3:
      $1.70
      CO:
      $12.94
      BU:
      $0.98
      SB:
      $2.10
      BB:
      $10.00

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K, A.
      UTG2 calls $0.10, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.5, 5 folds, UTG2 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.15) Q, K, T (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.82, UTG2 calls $0.82.

      Turn: ($2.79) 5 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $1.33, UTG2 raises to $2.66, Hero calls $1.33.

      River: ($8.11) 4 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $4.20, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $8.11.


      was just wondering if anone would have folded to raise on turn. put him on AJ, KQ, TT or even KT (he was playing suited kings most positions)
      couldn't think of anything I was beating so easy fold right?

      bet more on the flop - 1$.

      without stats or reads it is not so easy fold imo but on such blank river he minraise you... well on this limit people never float, and minraise is usually the nuts so folding is not a bad play. calling 1.33 for pot of 8 and hoping for J is not really good idea as Js will put you on a hard spot.

      +1, but definitely bet bigger on turn, he might have sensed weakness in your small half potsize bet and decided to minraise.
