      Hey, i've never posted a hand before so I thought i'd give it a go and get a professional opinion! I'll admit it wasnt the best of plays before the criticism!

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:club: , T:club:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.05, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.03, BB checks.
      I decided to call to see a cheap flop

      Flop: ($0.15) J:heart: , 9:heart: , 5:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG2 checks.
      I checked as the flop gave me nothing really and flush draw is out there

      Turn: ($0.15) K:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.2, UTG2 folds, Hero calls $0.20.
      I get a King and check to see if anyone bets. Someone bets so I call thinking he's just trying to buy the pot with a bluff

      River: ($0.55) K:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.6, Hero calls $0.60.
      Another King gives me trips but also a flush so I check/call to keep the pot small. I didnt think the other guy would have a flush as he would of bet the flop

      Final Pot: $1.75

      Hey shutty20,

      Welcome to the sample hands forum :) !

      Looking at the SHC, one can see that hands like KTs,KJ,QJ,QT are simply not displayed because we have such a small stack and our kicker isn't really a good one as soon as we hit toppair.

      Playing your hands on the SB also has it cons because you are out of position on the Flop/Turn/River

      So preflop I would fold.
      On the Flop I would check fold too.
      On the Turn i would bet out $0.15 because I have toppair now and need to protect against flushdraws and straightdraws
      On the River K I would bet small (50% pot) and fold to a raise most often because I dont think people would raise 1pairs/2pairs here

      As played, I like the check/call on the River
