      $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      5 players

      Hero (UTG) ($27.57)
      CO ($22.23)------32/5/1.7 (55)
      BTN ($25.00)
      SB ($5.32)------72/0/6 (25)
      BB ($49.71)------19/14/1.7 (35)

      Pre-flop: ($0.35, 5 players) Hero is UTG K:spade: K:heart:
      Hero raises to $1, CO calls $1, 1 fold, SB calls $0.90, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: 4:heart: 9:club: 5:club: ($4, 4 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $3, Hero calls $3, 1 fold, SB folds

      Turn: 8:diamond: ($10, 2 players)
      BB bets $7, Hero goes all-in $23.57, BB calls $16.57

      River: 5:heart: ($57.14, 2 players)

      Calling the flop was the worst option imo.
      Either fold or raise flop. Whats the standart play here?
      As played, call turn and reevaluate river?

      raise flop,try to get allin.I think the way you played it on turn is ok.if u just call then on the river the pot will be 24$ and u will have 16$..can u really get away from it? :)

      Taggish guy who doesn't seem that aggressive overcalls out of position after two fishes and then leads a raggedy flop into the pfa + the two fishes. That means nut flush draw / combo draw / set, standard lines are :

      - "screw it, i'm not folding my KK ever", or raise/call flop

      - "damn, maybe it's not worth the variance against that nittish guy", or fold flop

      - "i don't like the two lines above, too strong to fold too weak to go broke", or call flop call blank turn reevaluate river

      Personally i think you're better off giving too much credit at these stakes than too little, people just aren't getting out of line that often. And since the "reevaluate river" from the third line is basically gonna require you to fold on a club river and flip a coin to decide whether that guy can desperation bluff a busted draw into you on a blank, maybe you're better off taking the fold flop line against his range there with two fishes left to act, no matter how weak it looks.

      Hope it helps.
