      I'm stumbled. Should I have folded?

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $2.22
      MP2:
      $2.11
      MP3:
      $2.69
      CO:
      $0.70
      BU:
      $0.72
      SB (Hero):
      $2.00
      BB:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, K.
      2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, BB calls $0.08, MP3 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.3) 4, 2, 8 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.04, BB raises to $0.16, MP3 raises to $2.59(All-In), Hero calls $1.86, BB folds.

      Turn: ($4.95) 3 (2 players)


      River: ($4.95) T (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.95.
      Results follow:

      MP3 shows three of a kind, eights(8s 8d).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(Ks Kh).

      MP3 wins with three of a kind, eights(8s 8d).

      I assume that limp/call from early position is usually a pp. So I think that he won't 3bet shove without a set here. Therefore this is a fold.

      Hello andriixakep,

      Your bet sizing is so crappy on flop, I would do it like $0,25 and likely fold to such line. Not much you beat there, you very often against sets.

      Best regards.

      I actually tried to slowplay the hand.
      I guess you should not slow play KK. As you may be called by a weak ace easily.
      The 0.25 bet sounds reasonable. I would stick to the 2/3 of the pot (0.20))

      I'll try to think before calling such an all-ins, and do reasonable bets.

      And thanks for the evaluation!)
