Hey all

Wondering if there was a different way to play this... My only thought was maybe I should've pushed instead of raising big (then he might've folded, but with donks you never know...)

Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

Play hand

\$0.01/\$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

Known players:
SB:
\$0.55
BB:
\$2.18
MP3:
\$2.00
CO:
\$2.43
BU (Hero):
\$2.35

Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
MP3 folds, CO raises to \$0.04, Hero raises to \$0.14, SB calls \$0.13, BB folds, CO calls \$0.10.

Flop: (\$0.44) Q, 9, 2 (3 players)
SB bets \$0.41, CO calls \$0.41, Hero raises to \$1.31, CO calls \$0.90.

Turn: (\$3.47) T (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets \$0.90, CO calls \$0.90.

River: (\$5.27) A (3 players)

Final Pot: \$5.27.
Results follow:

CO shows two pairs, queens and tens(T Q).
SB shows a pair of queens(Q K).
Hero shows a pair of kings(K K).

CO wins with two pairs, queens and tens(T Q).

your pot comitted on the flop if your going to call or raise so you should be pushing. On that low of microstake 3 bet minimally (although that ultimately a personal choice).

well you want him to call so if you think hewill more likely call the flop without a shove do it in the end his two pair beats your kings he aint folding top pair at this limit

I also think you played it fine
Flop shove would be a little too big, so I like making 1.3\$ raise and you´re shoving basically any turn card and if he is one pair hand he likely has 5 outs to improve so you don´t have to worry too much protecting your hand
