      CO: $17.64 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 11, 3B: 5, AF: 1,4, Hands: 489
      BTN: $44.49 - VPIP: 59, PFR: 8, 3B: 8, AF: 1,8, Hands: 63; FtoCB:6/9; WTS:34
      Hero (SB): $28.66 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 92234
      BB: $25.00 - VPIP: 50, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 6,0, Hands: 10
      UTG: $28.78 - VPIP: 29, PFR: 22, 3B: 14, AF: 2,0, Hands: 45

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with K :diamond: K :heart:
      2 folds, BTN calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.55, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.45

      Flop: ($1.20) Q :heart: 8 :spade: A :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70
      Maybe I should just CB, because if he calls, I'm usually behind, and I can spare a lot of money (instead of calling down, letting him "bluff")


      Turn: ($2.60) J :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.20, Hero ?

      Some hands ago he limp/called with 66, and on A-high board he checked flop (I checed behind because he looked aggro then), and he donked both flop and turn, but for smaller amounts.

      Basically if he only calls with better hands it would mean you are bluffing with KK. There are much better hands to bluff with - for example 89 is going to have more equity vs an Ace. On the other hand, 89 doesn't make a very good bluffcatcher while KK does.

      So technically while you could use KK to bluff it isn't the best hand to do it with in the long run - it's better to use it as a bluffcatcher.

      If you felt you were going to get run over a lot if you check flop, check/folding is an option. Check calling multiple streets is also an option but I wouldn't do this until you are certain he is going to do crazy things like 3barrel 66 here.

      Without any info I think your line is fine and the standard line.
