      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from

      saw flop

      UTG ($12.40)
      MP ($20.20)
      Gerv (CO) ($25.25)
      Button ($40.90)
      SB ($25.25)
      BB ($25.85)

      Preflop: Gerv is CO with Q, Q
      UTG bets $0.75, MP calls $0.75, Gerv raises to $3, 4 folds, MP calls $2.25

      Flop: ($7.10) 8, 9, K (2 players)
      MP checks, Gerv bets $4, MP calls $4

      Turn: ($15.10) A (2 players)
      MP checks, Gerv checks

      River: ($15.10) 5 (2 players)
      MP bets $5.50, Gerv calls $5.50

      1) Barrel Turn to put him all-in? he has $13 left on the Turn

      2) Shove River with 2nd nuts or just flat?, he can call my Flop with K:sAx for example or K:sQx but honestly I don't think he has AK since he coldcalls an Openraise but calling a squeeze confuses me

      Turn is fine, you don't have to shove 2nd pair there when that board doesn't scare him, when you get called with both an A, a K and 3 to a flush on board, you're likely drawing to your flush or even drawing to a Q if he indeed has the Ks.

      On the river i'm shoving, he could have any other spade and not be willing to fold it, some two pairs or sets he tried to slowplay and can't fold for that price either. His bet doesn't seem that strong to me. Against that player i think it's worth the risk of him showing you the Ks.

      Hope it helps.
