      How much to bet after flop? The board is really dry and there is no flush draw on the way or something like this.

      I did a smaller bet than usual, but wasn't sure whether to bet at all. I will be in the lead after the turn too (just AA can beat me on the turn as far as I see and even that is very improbable...).

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:diamond: , K:spade:
      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, 5 folds, MP1 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.15) K:club: , 2:diamond: , K:heart: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.70, MP1 folds.

      Final Pot: $1.85

      nh and bet size is fine too. i never check behind here, just bet bet bet. even if the chances are like zero, your hand is still vulnerable - any pocket pair which hits, has you beat.
      don't adjust the bet sizes to your hand strength unless you have to protect against draws. just c-bet as you would do with any other hand, otherwise you'll get pretty much exploitable for any thinking player.

      Nh. C-bet as usual otherwise your check behind will be more suspicious than a c-bet. ;)

      Only thing you can do is bet 1/2 pot but that's it, well played :)

      Best regards,
