      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with 9 :heart: J :heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.55) 8 :spade: K :club: K :spade: (2 players)

      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.01, Hero folds

      1) Should my flop cBet not have been ~$0.35 vs his stack size?
      2) Given the relatively ugly turn card, can I just give up on the turn vs this guy?
      3) Should I be prepared to cBet many turns if cBetting this flop vs this guy (i.e., if I'm not all that happy about 2nd barreling often vs him, should I cBet this flop in the first place?)?

      Hi,

      1) Should my flop cBet not have been ~$0.35 vs his stack size?
      - I would bet 0.3$, but since you only min-raised pre-flop and you have no equity then c/f is also fine

      2) Given the relatively ugly turn card, can I just give up on the turn vs this guy?
      - yes a lot better option than barreling

      3) Should I be prepared to cBet many turns if cBetting this flop vs this guy (i.e., if I'm not all that happy about 2nd barreling often vs him, should I cBet this flop in the first place?)?
      - I would usually take one stab and then give up- I can always balance that out by c/r my made hands and c/c hands that has showdown value

      best regards,
