      That is such a horrible river card.

      Pre-flop: ok
      Flop: Pot bet in a limped pot with bottom two pair imo. There's a flush draw and multiple straight draws on the board. Don't give him a cheap turn card. You're re-raise is good.

      Turn: Bet more, it's 2NL... he's not gonna fold a King probably.
      Just imagine the river card blanking out for a second here... 2 for example.
      The way you played it, the river pot is $1.09 and you've got $1.46 behind, there's no way you can go all-in except if you get raised (which is not very likely if he only has a pair of kings).
      Now... if you bet something 42c-ish on the turn the river pot will be $1.45 with yourself having $1.28 behind. With those amounts you can easily go all-in on the river...

      River: check/call a normal bet imo or probably even check/fold. If he overshoves the pot, it's a snapfold for sure at least. I just think you're very often gonna see a king here.

      I think Mstlc pretty much nailed it, you have a good hand, bet more on flop/turn, he's not folding Kx, and that's a decent part of his range. Which is why that river card is so bad, it's hard but just check/fold it unless he gives you retarded odds, your hand is dead unless he can bluff missed flushdraws, which i don't think he would play like that on the flop anyway.

      Hope it helps.
