      Hero (SB): $10.36 (259 bb)
      MP: $2.79 (69.8 bb)
      CO: $8.46 (211.5 bb)-VPIP 26%-PFR 20%-PFAF 2.4-FT3Bet 84%(32)-FTFlCB 70%(20)-WTSD 15%-W$SD 65%(20)-Hands 840
      BTN: $5.66 (141.5 bb)
      BB: $6.89 (172.3 bb)
      UTG: $12.37 (309.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J K
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.04, CO raises to $0.16, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.56, 2 folds, CO calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.20) 4 2 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.58, CO raises to $1.16, Hero folds

      $2.36 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: 4 2 4
      Hero mucked J K and lost (-$1.14 net)
      CO mucked and won $2.25 ($1.11 net)

      CO is Agressive who has high Stealing %, I 3Bet KJo vs the CO with a high CO steal % he could eaisly be Isoing the Limp, on the Flop his Fold to CBet stat is quite good for me so I think CBetting is correct.

      1) What's your definition of high stealing? Is he opening the CO with 30%+ of hands?
      2) This isn't a steal situation. MP limped so CO is iso-raising.

      I don't think you need to 3bet so huge. 50 cents should suffice, CO's raise is already to 4bb so the pot is much larger than if he only raised to 3bb.

      3) Should you even 3bet KJo? Could you call KJo profitably? I think it's hard when it's not suited and it's likely to be played 3way if limper calls. So maybe KJo becomes a suitable candidate to be used as the bluff portion of your range (we would fold to a 4B).

      As played there's nothing you can do besides bet/folding the Flop.
