      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.30 BB (4 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from

      SB ($65.29)
      Hero (BB) ($47.90)
      UTG ($55.08)
      Button ($13.82)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, 9
      2 folds, SB bets $1.05, Hero raises $3.30, SB calls $2.40

      Flop: ($7.20) 8, K, 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($7.20) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $4, Hero calls $4

      River: ($15.20) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $10, Hero calls $10

      Total pot: $35.20

      Villian seemed quite good playing 47/38 af 2.9 118 hands he stole 43% from SB. I decide to check behind flop as I think I might only get 2 streets of value from a worst hand and I was hoping it might induce a bluff. How's my line? We happy with check flop and then calling 2 streets?

      since board is dry I think check back there is fine
      Villain would sometimes c/r there with bluffs, but mostly hands like KQ/KJ for value
      So you don´t have to bet and get all-in or at least bet and then call him down on that board
