      Hi

      I do not think I played this hand correct.
      On turn I did not want to build the pot on a drawheavy board and check/called. Would it be better to have raised or folded to the bet and call?


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $1/$2 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $35.30
      MP1:
      $219.00
      MP2:

      $383.45
      BB:
      $36.65
      UTG1(Hero):
      $197.00

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, K.
      Hero raises to $6, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $6.00, 4 folds, SB calls $5.00, BB folds.

      Flop: ($20.00) 6, 9, T (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $20.00, MP1 calls $20.00, SB calls $20.00.

      Turn: ($80.00) 9 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP1 bets $62.00, SB calls $62.00, Hero calls $62.00.

      River: ($266.00) 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP1 checks.

      Final Pot: $266.00.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and nines (K K)
      SB shows a flush, nine high (5 7)
      MP1 shows two pairs, jacks and nines (J J)
      SB wins with a flush, nine high (5 7).

      Hi I would push that turn, because it is so draw heavy.

      Reason:
      A set would protect the flop vs draws, hence your hand should be good.

      c/rai on the turn is interesting solution
      although I´m not sure which worse hand would call that
      I´d likely would bet again on the turn to get value for allt eh draws out there and maybe some Tx would also call.
      don´t think players would raise there too light, so you can likely bet/fold
