      Known players:

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:heart: , T:heart:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, CO folds, BU calls $2.00, SB calls $1.75, BB folds.

      Flop: ($6.50) 5:diamond: , 3:club: , K:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.63, BU calls $4.63, SB folds.

      Hero bets $14.60, BU calls $11.50 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $56.84

      Should I have bet higher on flop or turn to avoid this? BU seems loose wasn't sure I can knock him off no matter what I did....

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and tens (Kh Th)
      BU shows a flush, ace high (Ad Jd)

      BU wins with a flush, ace high (Ad Jd)

      Flop bet is fine. Versus this guy, I wanna get it in with my top pair, as I really expect him to may me off with a bunch of crap with this WTSD

      I might bet a little bigger on the turn, but I don't think it makes much of a difference, since the pot will still be big enough for you to go all in on the river.

      since you´re likely not b/f turn I´d bet more turn to get more value with flushdraws. That also makes you commit to shobve any river card.
