      fold preflop blind steals from Sb are very costly

      very thank, that I know also. BB seemed to me like very solid guy with nice BB/100 but way too solid, as you can see he totaly missplayed his 2 pair. He trapped me and called river where he was behind like always

      If I don't believe in that ace on the flop 2nd ace on the board just strenghtens the feeling :) I'd put you either on ace or a on a jack(likely) here, which also beats him tho.

      Just fold preflop. K2s not quite good enough to play OOP profitably.
      As played, you could either bet the Turn, if you think, villain will float a ton there, or just give up your hand.
      Especially when the Turn goes check-check, you won't ever get credit for an Ace here, since you are representing a very thin range, because you would bet most of your strong Aces on the Turn.
      I think you will get called by a nine here all day long, especially by the better players.
