      Hero:
      $5
      BU:
      $4.92

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.80 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K:diamond: , K:club:
      UTG1 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, 4 folds, BU calls $0.25, 2 folds, UTG1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.82) 9:diamond: , 6:club: , 8:diamond: (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.4, BU folds, UTG1 calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.62) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero raises $4.35 (All-In), UTG1 calls $2.26 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      River: ($6.14) 3:club: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $6.14

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows high card queen with ten kicker (Qs Ts)
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kd Kc)

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Kd Kc)

      I am not sure that betting half the pot was a wise move in this particular situation. I am also not sure about the all-in after the draw hit.

      I would bet a lot more on the flop... something around 3/4 or even potsize. Then, the turn would be easy shove. Yes, FD got there but you have second nut flush redraw and some straight draws are still incomplete. Not to mention that any overpair with a diamond would call the shove there. Hope it helps!

      Preflop is ok.

      Flop, bet more, you need to protect. A bet around $0.65-$0.7 would be ok.

      Then on the Turn, you can go all in if the pot will be around $2 ( taking in consideration that villain only has $2 left).
