      CO: $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $24.56 (49.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.75, 2 folds, SB calls $1.50, BB folds

      Flop: ($4) T Q 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3.25, SB raises to $6.50, Hero calls $3.25

      Turn: ($17) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $9.50, Hero folds

      $17 pot ($0.76 rake)
      Final Board: T Q 7 8
      SB mucked and won $16.24 ($7.99 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$8.25 net)

      Is it better to 3bet flop ? I would pretty much isolate myself vs better hands and draws with which I am flipping so I don't enjoy the idea much.

      I decided to fold the turn without the redraw as I expect to be behind the majority of the time

      He does not seem that aggressive to me. It's just 10% c/r flop, not big AFq, folds a bit >40% to cbets. Only thing I see is him calling a lot preflop. That means passive so I would often just fold flop without the backdoor flush.
