      Hi,

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $12.52
      MP3 (Hero):
      $10.10
      CO:
      $15.84
      BU:
      $13.40
      SB:
      $9.87
      BB:
      $5.67


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, K.
      MP2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30, MP2 calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.25) 7, J, 9 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $1.00, BB calls $1.00, MP2 folds.

      Turn: ($3.25) 8 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.50, BB raises to $4.27, Hero calls $1.77.

      River: ($11.79) 7 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $11.79.

      Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF/Hands)
      MP2 - 37/0/0.7/51
      BB - 34/15/4.0/65

      Should I play the turn differently? There are 4 to a straight on the board, and I'm not sure he will call me with one-pair type hands. If we bet and he raises, I don't think we can fold. Maybe check behind/call river is better?

      Thanks
      Yuri

      I think turn is bet/fold. You are behind of all his c/r range I think. I dont think he is c/raising here with flushdraws/one pair hands.

      Hello Yuris125,

      I think you played this hand perfectly. You can't really fold to his check / raise on the turn when you are getting 10:1. He is going to bet the river with straights and check behind anything else I think. If he raised any bigger on the turn I would fold

      Kind Regards,
      Toby

      I think checking turn and calling river bet is a little better, since you´re beat on that turn card quite a lot and this way you control the size of the pot
