      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:heart: , K:diamond: . MP2 posts a blind of $0.50.
      4 folds, MP2 checks, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, SB folds, BB raises to $3.50, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $10.00, BB calls $6.50.

      River: ($106.00) T:spade:

      BB is a fishy opponent. I had a very bad feeling when my flop bet got called, and I don't think I should bet the turn because there aren't many possible hands I can beat at that point. Any thoughts?

      Hi Timor83!

      Bet more on the flop (~$12-14) and check behind turn for pot control and bluff induce. This way you win the most from worse hands and lose the minimum against better hands.

      Good luck at the tables!
