      Full Tilt Poker - No Limit Hold'em Cash Game - $0.05/$0.10 Blinds - 6 Players - (LegoPoker Hand History Converter)

      SB: $4.30
      Hero (BB): $10.00
      UTG: $8.10
      MP: $9.85
      CO: $11.55
      BTN: $17.35

      Reads: I believe it was correct to check the river and try for a bluff induce since I cant really see any worse hands calling a bet from me. But was the turn ok? Or would a check have any merit in this spot at all?

      Preflop: Hero is dealt K 7 (6 Players)
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.25) K K J (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.25, MP calls $0.25

      Turn: ($0.75) K K J Q (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.65, MP calls $0.65

      River: ($2.05) K K J Q 2 (2 Players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00

      Pot Size: $4.05 ($0.40 Rake)

      Hi snowylee!

      I think you should bet again on the turn for value. If he has a better K so be it, but I don't think so. That's why I would bet on the river again. Try to get value. Maybe he calls you down with a J (maybe QJ) or small pocket pair. If he raises you, it's an easy fold but by checking you are losing value imo.

      Good luck at the tables!
