      Bad bet sizing? Did value betting mess me up, or did I just happen to run into the wrong opponent?

      Bet bigger on the flop around 3/4 pot, bet around 3/4 pot on the turn as well and 2/3 to 3/4 on the river. Nobody is folding Kx and you beat all of those, so don't be shy and get more value all the way.

      As played when you get raised on the river it's awkward but against an unknown you have to call, considering you bet very small all the way and it's possible for him to make a weird raise with another Kx or busted spade because you look weak.

      As for the results obviously his play is awful and reinforces the fact that you need to just bet bigger all the way against people who can't fold anything.

      Hope it helps.
