      I guess against such calling station there's no point of PFR raise with such marginal hand. On the flop i guess everything is fine. What to do on the turn? Is there a point of calling his minreraise? It's tempting but looks like a flush.

      VPIP/PFR/AF/Hands 51/9/1.3/149
      WTSD/W$SD 33/46

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, 9.
      3 folds, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) J, Q, T (2 players)
      SB bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.45, SB calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.50, SB raises to $1.00, Hero calls $0.50.

      River: ($3) 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $4.18, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.

      Sure there is, he'll call you with worse Kx hands and all sorts of trash that you can play profitably against with K9 in position. It's a snap raise for me and a lot of other players.

      As played I think your line is fine. Alternatively you could just fold to the turn donk/3bet line, since when it follows a donk/call line on a drawy flop it's very likely some flopped draw that got there, and you're redrawing-dead with your straight. Only call the 3-bet if you think villain could suddenly get aggro with some combo AdQx hand or very oddly play something that flopped two pairs or something.

      Hope it helps.
