      Known players:

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:club: , Q:club:
      2 folds, CO calls $0,25, Hero raises to $1,25, 2 folds, CO calls $1,00.

      Flop: ($2,85) Q:diamond: , 4:heart: , J:diamond: (2 players)

      Turn: ($6,85) T:club: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $4,00, CO calls $4,00.

        i was puting him on draw, i should bet more aronud 5 i think, but i wanted him to call so thats why i bet only 4, 4 was good for flush draw but he had also inside str8 draw so i gave him good odds

      River: ($14,85) K:diamond: (2 players)
      CO bets $5,00, Hero calls $5,00.

        i knew he got there but he bets so small that i had to call i think, or did i have to fold on river

      Final Pot: $24,85

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and queens (Kc Qc)
      CO shows a flush, ace high (Ad 2d)

      CO wins with a flush, ace high (Ad 2d)

      it was so obvious he had Ad, we can all agree on that

      if you know he is calling to catch a draw and you puprosefully make it easier for him you should be more prepared to fold the river

      any A, any 2 diamonds, any set and any slowplayed straight has you beat.

      i make this mistake too sometimes and i end up shouting the following to myself:

      fold it you idiot!!!! why dont you just fold it????

      Even with a fd + gutshot he still has only 25% equity and needs ~27% so it`s still not enough :D But I would also make it a bit bigger , about 4.5-5 maybe. On river just fold.

      I´d also prefer 5$ on the turn
      Very hard to fold river, unless you have reads that he´d play his draws that way, I think you can call river with top two pair, you´ll never know if player would valuebet there worse two pair.
