      Hero should?

      Villain often minraised preflop and his preflop raise could means anything. If hero bet on the flop, it villian would have minraised and hero would have had no information. Villain, however, only called hero's raise which might indicate a weakness.

      That's why I don't like c/r on flop with such a hand, now if you check you give the villain signal that you are giving up, and it is not great to lead with the betting when villain called you on this flop. And if villain really had K he would simply call the 3bet, board is dry and no need to scare away other pocket pairs

      Also I would make reraise on flop to something like $7.

      Youy can´t really expect that player would fold to your small re-raise on the flop. SO if you´re going to c/r then make it 6-7$.
      I´d just like to c/f flop, you can´t really represent much here and BU is calling station.
      Hero should c/f turn, since he doesn´t have fold equity.
