      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      MP2 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB folds, BB calls $0.15, MP2 calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.62) J, 3, J (3 players)

      Turn: ($1.42) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($3.02) A (2 players)
      MP2 bets $2.53, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.02.

      I was pretty sad on the river, the worst card that could possibly come has made its appearance.
      On the flop I made 2/3 bet as it was kinda dry, on the turn hmm almost 2/3 because I didn't put him on the flushdraw, but on the river, when he shoved it
      ,I thought that even if I eliminate the fact that he has an Ace, maybe he slowplayed a Jack, 33 ,55 or maybe AJ :)
      So all in all I'm pretty satisfied of not losing another 2,53 $ :)
      What's your opinion?

      The A doesn't worry me that much, it's pretty tough for him to have it unless it's something like AdXd or A3 maybe A5, and most people just don't jam the river with those top pair hands after you bet twice into them on a paired board.

      So unless he's just completely out of his mind (like he's floating garbage twice and bluff-shoving the river for the hell of it or something) he'll have Jx there very often and a boat sometimes, just praying you hit the A somehow and can't let go of it.

      Hope it helps.
