      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, K.
      4 folds, MP3 calls $0.05, 2 folds, SB calls $0.03, Hero raises to $0.30, MP3 calls $0.25, SB folds.

      Flop: ($0.65) 5, 6, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, MP3 raises to $0.86, Hero calls $0.51.

      Turn: ($2.37) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, MP3 raises to $2.95, Hero calls $0.95.

      River: ($8.27) Q (2 players)

      Final Pot: $8.27.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and fives(Kh Kc).
      MP3 shows a full-house, threes full of fives(3s 3h).

      MP3 wins with a full-house, threes full of fives(3s 3h).

      Preflop standard.
      Flop - I dont think villain calls with 5x trash, so the only hands that beat me here is 66 and AA. I am not sure wheter I should have go all in or if the call is correct.
      Turn - protection/value bet, calling 0.95 is a must I guess.

      Since it's hard for him to have much on the flop i'd give him a range of few 5x, A6/77-88 type of stuff, likely some 43/87 as well and a lot of air/overcarded crap. So i like your call on the flop since he's weak there and might find a fold with all the hands you beat when you 3-bet him, but i'd usually check/jam the turn to give him a chance to bet those air hands again as a bluff or wrongly valuebet a small overpair/6x. If he checks back the turn it's not the end of the world, we can still get another bet of some pairs by donking out on the river.

      As played you got 2-outed it's a cooler, don't sweat it.

      Hope it helps.
