      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with K :spade: 6 :heart:
      3 folds, SB raises to $0.25, Hero calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.50) 2 :diamond: 6 :spade: 4 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.84
      I think there is no better way to play this: he most likely has air here, and only calling this would give him chance to catch up, since he doesnt 2ndbarrel with air, so he wont put in any more money in the hand with a weak hand--> I have to collect dead money!
      Is this line of thinking correct?

      Hello,

      Can you explain to me why we are calling preflop here? I mean, what's the plan for postflop?

      As played, don't really want to raise here.
      Just call and play on the turn. Raising is likely to isolate us against better hands only.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Villain's Fto3b is 57, so I cant 3bet this hand.

      I have the better hand equitywise most likely AND I have the position, hence calling.
      He CBETS flop nearly always, but checks beck turn, so I'm planning on floating unimproved. (I admit, I didnt have a plan, I just saw: K-high hand IP vs 90% range? Cant fold this!)

      With that in mind, flop-raising is silly, because he wont improve that often I guess...
      But isnt "collecting dead money" enough reason to raise here with our made hand?
      With air I'd float, because it's cheaper and we have more info.

      But with this made hand, I wanna protect my equity.

      So, I don't mind calling if we are going to exploit his leak.

      On the flop by raising we are turning our hand into a bluff mostly which isn't nice since he can even bet on the turn with worse 6x and also he has only about 12% chance to improve on the turn if he has overcards.
