      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (9 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      Button ($50.05)
      SB ($54.75)
      BB ($39.95)
      UTG ($14.95)
      Hero (UTG+1) ($18.85)
      MP1 ($28.05)
      MP2 ($39.15)
      MP3 ($26)
      CO ($52.50)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with K, A
      1 fold, Hero bets $1.75, MP1 calls $1.75, MP2 calls $1.75, 1 fold, CO calls $1.75, Button calls $1.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($9.50) K, K, 2 (5 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, MP2 bets $6, 2 folds, Hero raises $17.10 (All-In), 1 fold, MP2 calls $11.10

      Turn: ($43.70) 4 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($43.70) 6 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $43.70

      Was it ok to check/raise or should I lead a bet myself?
      I was hoping for some value and therefore some bet :)
      If everyone checked I would lead the turn, but I would have to c/f if another c came, right?
      What would you do if turn came c? b/f, c/f or c/c and reevaluate river as there is FH possible.
      thanks :)

      check/raise looks so strong that worse hands will not even consider calling you.
      So you only get value with a c/RAI with worser kings and some NutFlush but you filter out the rest of his range you beat.

      Therefore I just bet $7 or 6.5 to let people get sucked into the pot. It sucks if a comes on the Turn but hands like J:cJ or T:cT would then also be inclined to call you

      You also dont want to give 4 players a freecard ;)
