Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has Q:spade: K:heart:

Hero raises to $0.06, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.06, fold, fold

Flop: ($0.15, 2 players) K:diamond: 2:club: 6:heart:
Hero bets $0.07, BTN raises to $0.14, Hero calls $0.07

Dry flop with top pair so I go half pot hoping for the loose villain to continue wide here. Villain raises here but he's been pretty splashy so I just call.

Turn: ($0.43, 2 players) Q:diamond:
Hero bets $0.20, BTN calls $0.20

I turn two pair and go half pot again to just get some more value out of the hand hoping for a call with whatever he's raising flop with.
I could've went for a check/raise but decided to just bet out thinking I could get more value this way.

River: ($0.83, 2 players) 9:diamond:
Hero checks, BTN bets $0.80, Hero raises to $1.60, BTN calls $0.40 and is all-in

I check here happy with the size of the pot and allowing Villain to bluff since backdoor flush is pretty unlikely when Villain check raises flop and calls turn. Villain goes for the bet and I raise him for the rest of his stack not being too much behind.
I put him pretty much on hands like a king or a queen and maybe smaller two pairs and of course sets as well.

Hero shows Q:spade: K:heart: (Two Pair, Kings and Queens)
(Pre 39%, Flop 82%, Turn 80%)
BTN shows A:diamond: 5:diamond: (Flush, Ace High)
(Pre 61%, Flop 18%, Turn 20%)
BTN wins $3.07

$0.04 was deducted from the pot for the jackpot.
