      Hero (CO): $13.19 (263.8 bb)
      BTN: $12.46 (249.2 bb)
      SB: $8.27 (165.4 bb)
      BB: $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $12.44 (248.8 bb)
      MP: $12.61 (252.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K K
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.17, BTN calls $0.17, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.41) 5 T A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, BTN raises to $0.55, Hero folds

      The guy is 65/38/27. I saw him raising CB once or twice before, but with 27 hands it's no good to make any conclusions.

      Without a king on the turn, I'm check/folding, so I decided to fold right on the flop.

      Hope I didn't go too far down this road? It's just a pair of kings in the end.

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I like cbetting here on the flop since I think it will show profit even if we check/fold any turn but K.
      When he raises I prefer folding. Calling here will put us a in a tough spot where we will only play guessing games without any info so I prefer folding and waiting for a better spot.
