      Didn´t want to make contibet, because that would have put him all-in and I wasn´t sure that I was ahead. I couldn´t figure out what kind of hand he could min-bet twice that my king high could beat so I folded:D River should be autocall:)

      What about c-betting??? What about calling a river bet, he only has to bluff less than one of 15 times or so.... And the call would be correct.

      Any c-bet would put him all-in and I´m not very often ahead here.

      Then there's two options. Put him allin right away... Or check/fold. But this is another case. You aren't gonna fold a river to a bet that's that small...

      Let me ask you something... With what intention did you call the turn? See if a K or Q would come off?

      Yes, and I also has gutshot straight draw. I know that I should call the river, but he bet twice to me, so I put him Ax.

      On the Turn you can only give yourself 3 clear Outs here for the NutStraight. A King or Queen might just give you the 2nd best hand, since your opponent could hold and Ace.

      Since he is a short stack as well, you either push him all-In on the Flop since you see enough fold equity against him or give up your hand.

      You only getting a bit more then 11:1 on the Turn, but maybe you only have 15:1.

      But you can´t call either, you do not have the odds here for sure to call. So if you do not like to fold and feel weakness then you should raise here. But your opponent will call you very often here, since he will not believe that you have an Ace here, since you checked behind on the Flop. With the check behind you gave up your hand on the Flop.

      I can´t put MP2 always Ax. He could limp/call with PP and with suited connectors, like 9T, 9J, 98. I know that i gave up the hand, when I checked, but his min bet gives me good enough pot odds to call his turn and river bet. Next time I´ll just put him all-in, and lost 4/5 my stack^^

      Even if he only has T9, why do you want to call on the River. The only think you would beat here is a pure bluff. And a pure bluff NEVER EVER would bet this small.

      I could spend 0,25 cents to find out what hand he min-bet me twice. And I cant 100% sure, that he couldn´t do that with Kx. There are enough bad players who might do that.

      In the end its always your decision. I do not see him here minbetting with only Kx and a non made hand.
