      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 5, 5.
      3 folds, BU raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $5.00, BB folds, BU calls $3.50.

      Flop: ($10.5) T, 7, 2 (2 players)

      Hero checks, BU bets $7.00, Hero calls $7.00.

      Turn: ($24.5) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Hero checks, BU bets $20.00, Hero raises to $38.25, BU calls $18.25.

      Final Pot: $101.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, fives(5 5).
      BU shows a pair of kings(Q K).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, fives(5 5).

      I did not think he had 10 or JJ+ because he checked the turn. i thought he probally had Ax, or maybe Kx.
      Against his air i bluff induce
      Against his king i get a full stack rather than only one bet b/c i think if i had bet 15-20$ he might of flat called

      interesting play
      BU shouldn´t have there too many times Kx, not sure how often he´d bet there Tx or lower pp-s, that he likely has.
      But if player likes to bluff/bet river then your play is fine
