      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop why do we cbet so small? I'd bet around $0.75-$0.8 here.

      As played, the card on the turn doesn't really help us so I'd just check/fold here.

      Check/folding the river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Why should we bet more?

      On these monotone boards I do tend to bet close to the pot size every time since we are only betting with the strongest part of our range.

      Also, these boards are quite scary about both you and villain, and the fact that you bet strong will put pressure on his weaker range and he won't be inclined to float or call with weak hands so I think it gives us more FE.

      On the turn the 2s doesn't improve our equity, neither our fold equity I think, and we can't really value bet with K high, so I prefer giving up here.

      +1
      MAybe I overestimate our equity. I just see: OCs+K-high FD.
      If I'd call a bet, I'd rather bet myself to gain some FE.
      What do you think?

      Yeah, betting>check/calling for sure since by betting we can take down the pot and still have some equity to improve.
