      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):
      $4.12
      BB:
      $5.01
      MP3:
      $4.08
      CO:
      $3.82
      BU:
      $4.02


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3, 4.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, BB calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.24) 2, K, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.17, BB raises to $0.34, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.41.

      Should I just check/fold the flop? The opponent seems to be a reg, so I think he would raise any two here.

      If you know that your opponent is reg, then you shouldn't play 34s OOP. Even if your opponent would be weak, it would be hard to play there, too.

      As played: Flop is bad for cbet, because you rarely hit. C/F is good line there.

      P.s seems like you fold on min-raise nearly anytime, maybe you should balance your lining by check/raising sometimes? Or check/calling. If you always cbet/fold there, your playing style becomes too obvious for your opponents.

      hi DarkBlade282,

      I'd advise you to fold this hand preflop as mentioned the above poster.

      Also I'd x/fold flop since we are at the bottom of our range and if we are not checking this we are barreling our entire range.

      This can also be ok if we have any reads on the opponent, I just say we should not recklessly barrel unknowns at a limit where they are known for calling down very weak hands.
