      iPoker - $0.50 NL - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BB): $60.68
      UTG: $53.33 VP:21/PR:15/AFq:56/Fold to 3B:77%/Fold to CBet 46% over 800 hands
      BTN: $22.32
      SB: $14.50

      SB posts SB $0.25, Hero posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has K:club: K:spade:

      UTG raises to $1.50, fold, fold, Hero raises to $5.00, UTG calls $3.50

      Flop: ($10.25, 2 players) 3:club: 3:diamond: T:diamond:
      Hero bets $7.00, UTG calls $7.00

      Turn: ($24.25, 2 players) T:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      River: ($24.25, 2 players) J:diamond:
      Hero bets $12.12, UTG raises to $41.33, fold

      Wasn't sure how to play this hand.

      I think I have to bet the turn to protect vs FD.
      I don't see any T in his range so he has JJ+/AK. The Turn check doesn't make sense.
      River bet is silly with the Jd. Either he completed is FD or he has FH with his JJ.
      C/C was ok on river (to a 1/2 or 2/3 pot size bet)?

      I agree this is a tricky hand.
      I would bet flop $6, bet/fold turn 60%. If called, I would only check /call a 1/2 psb, I am only beating bluffs and QQ.

      so strange hand
      Most UTG players won´t really call pf Tx or 3x.
      So basically you can b/c turn most times, since he is only reping quads.
      J is not the best card to bet river. he may turn there 88 into bluff and shove since you never has there better hand than overpair, maybe sometimes quads or JJ yourself. And I´m jnot sure he is calling your river bet with middle pp.
      So I think c/c river seems better option than b/f
