      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      MP: 20/16, cbet flop 63%, agg: 2.7/39% ... 226 hands ... note: open MP firstime from 25 hands
      SB: passive fish 55/23, agg: 0.4/11% ... 33 hands

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, J.
      MP2 raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB folds.
      call, JJ isn't good for 3bet UTG - he looks reg.

      Flop: ($1) K, 2, 5 (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($1) J (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.60, SB calls $0.60, MP2 raises to $1.80, Hero ???
      I hit set so bet for value from K, flushdraws... but UTG c/r - I think he has KK only, because:
      1. If UTG has AA/AK/55/22, he will cbet flop for value from K, PP... if he play tricky on flop, he will bet turn (no check)
      2. others PP he will cbet flop or he will play check/fold
      3. c/r turn - if he has KK, he check flop (because he hasn't value), he check turn (because still hasn't value)

      So, can I fold here? If no, what is UTG villain range in this situation (check flop, c/r turn)? Thank you.

      Preflop is fine.

      I like checking back the flop here.
      The board is dry, but we have second pair so we can hardly take more than one-two streets of value against pocket pair.
      In addition, since there aren't many bad turn cards for us I think checking is fine.

      On the turn betting is fine.
      When MP raises I would reraise and call a shove.
      We can never really fold here. His range is rather strong here but even if he has sets only we will in in two out of 3 situations.
