      Did I play this fine?

      UTG ($7.53)
      MP ($14.37)
      CO ($10)
      Button ($9.61)
      Hero (SB) ($9.49)
      BB ($8.64)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K
      UTG bets $0.20, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.30) K, 7, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, UTG calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.10) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, UTG raises to $1.65, Hero calls $0.85

      River: ($6.40) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $4.38 (All-In), Hero ?

      Lol, did you call or fold? It could be set, trips, top pair, overpair. It's most likely not 2pair and no draw was completed on the turn so the only hands you beat is a bluff. The others, you either split pot or get beat. I would either fold to the reraise or call raise, then all-in. Don't call the turn raise then fold the river since you aren't really drawing to anything and you can expect him to push given stack/pot sizes (unless he was bluffing and doesn't follow through).

      Otherwise, you really underbet the pot on the turn. For me, a bet small usually signifies weakness.

      Hi,


      As played after betting the turn so small i'm probably calling down for those odds, you can't bait the guy and then let go.

      I'd myself just bet like $1.8 on the turn and reluctantly call a shove against an unknown, there should be more Kx hands then 9x/77 in his range for calling preflop and it's hard to lay down TPTK in a 3bet pot, but i expect to also see a slowplay AA there sometimes.


      Hope it helps.
