      Hello, im begginer in poker. currently trying to learn and master BSS. here's my second hand i want to be evaluated.

      Unfortunately dont have a log of that hand but heres what happened

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      9 players total,

      Dealt to me : 2 :heart: ; 2 :spade:

      i limp for $0.04 to see the flop. 4 other players total limps also.

      Pot : $0.20
      K :spade: ; K :diamond: ; 2 :club:

      2 players check, i raise $0.14
      everybody folds except player on the button (last to act, Villain) calls.

      Pot : $0.48
      9 :spade:

      I raise $0.48, Villain calls.

      At this point i know he has a king

      Pot : $1.44
      3 :club:

      I Raise all in $3.84, Villain calls

      Pot : $9.12

      Villain shows K :heart: ; 7 :club:
      I show 2 :heart: ; 2 :spade:

      I take pot with a full house.

      You should bet potsize on the flop. (would have build the pot to 1.80 instead of 1.44 in the river)

      Your overbet on the river is fine for the limit I think, but it is usually a strange move that will fold a lot of hands and anyway you don't have the best possible hand for sure (he could've sucked out w K9, K3, 33, 99), but on this limit I think its fine.

      Just be careful when doing that again, esp. for example with flushes make sure you have A high flush and make sure the board is not paired, in those cases a 2/3 to potsize bet on the river is better.

      open limp is not good. Either raise or fold. It seems that you was in the early position, so folding is not bad.

      I like you bet on the flop. If someone has a King, he will pay you off. Your bet is is correct.

      I would bet normally on the river :D and call a shove.
