      Hi Staselu,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop should be a bet/fold despite the small raise he makes.

      We play versus a somewhat aggro guy and have a weak hand, so we need t o expect at least another barrel. So fold flop and move on.

      Now, if he often raises like this we can start ck/calling versus him and keeping the pots smaller (and avoid betting as pure bluff).

      How about 3-bet/fold on flop? If he raises often on such dry boards, then he would have to give up all his bluffs. This could be a spot to turn our hand into a bluff.

      Agree w check/call, too.

      You could bluff 3-bet the flop but it's not a good habit to get into. First, we wouldn't really 3-bet the flop for value. Second, our equity is poor so if called we rely on 2 outs. And third, we play versus an aggro guy that may raise Kx and go with it enough for us to not be able to bluff profitably.
