      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3(Hero):
      $10.00
      CO:
      $10.69
      BU:
      $30.20
      SB:
      $7.93
      BB:
      $9.63
      MP2:
      $10.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T, 8.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.85) K, K, K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.60, BB calls $1.10.

      Turn: ($4.05) 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.34, BB calls $2.34.

      River: ($8.73) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $8.73.

      Preflop: I like raising sometimes with these kind of hands.
      Questionable bets on flop/ turn, because he calls me with every pocket pair. (opponent is 52/17/4). I hit river, and now I think this is very bad check, like I said, he could call me with every PP.

      Hi,

      Preflop is fine as long as you know what you are doing postflop when you flop a marginal hand.

      Flop: Barrel here is fine if you think you have FE against him. Like you said he isn't folding a PP when he floped a boat.

      Turn: Bluffing fish is unprofitable! It's a bad card to second barrel, you think barrel a scare card like JQA but even then I wouldn't barrel If I don't think I have FE.

      River: That's a must value bet. He is calling there with his PP. I'll bet around 4.5$

      raising suited gappers is fine :) but basically you're playing them for fold eq, and if they hit big you sometimes will get paid off big! in this case i like a fold, you're drawing to 6 outs (in case BB would've 3-bet 99), you don't really have any sd value. BB could do this with just A high aswell, but even then you're way underdog.

      as played i check behind turn and v-bet river

      edit: dang too slow :D

      I played really bad against this guy the whole session. I think that even Cbet here is quite borderline decision, he saw me cbetting a lot before with air.

      In that case checking behind is better.
