      SB ($28.80)
      Hero ($10.25)
      UTG ($86.90)
      UTG+1 ($37.05)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5:heart: , K:heart: .
      UTG calls $0.50, [color:#666666]6 folds[/color], SB completes, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($1.50) K:diamond: , 4:heart: , 9:spade: [color:#0000FF](3 players)[/color]
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG checks.

      With 14 Outs, I like that play. 3-handed Sets often give action on the flop. As a semi-bluff I really like it. But against a Push I might would consider to fold. If he calls and I do not improve I check behind on the River, if I hit I push.

      Nice hand. :)

      I would've expected a bet from another K as well, which is part of the reason I felt comfortable raising here.

      I agree and that's how I planned on playing it.
