      Hey Beldyn,

      Preflop 3bet is close but maybe ok since CO isn't a full-stack. Flatting pf is a legitimate option and lower variance.

      Flop - Might be good to bet a little larger, perhaps $1, you want your opponent to fold. The raise is a little awkward but you have to call given the size of the pot. I wouldn't raise.

      Turn - Fold here is ok. You weren't really calling to hit a K, but to hit your straight. You do of course still have some equity vs villains value range but you need at least 30% to call, which you possibly don't have. If you felt villain was the sort to bluff a lot it's much closer to a call - but vs an unknown your fold is good.
