      Hello Aceton13,

      First of all it's good to see you posting more hands and trying to improve your poker skills and play. :) Keep going the good work and you will definitely improve your game.

      About the play:
      I'd say that often times I'd also rather like folding there when he does such a min-raise. I don't really expect him to do that with just Kx type of hand, more often he is trapping like with set or something similar. Therefore I guess without any reads or stats I like your fold and likely made a good play. Although I would raise a bit bigger like $0,60.

      Best regards.
