      Preflop: Minraise preflop is always bad. You are giving good odds to your opponent to outrun you. Play your KK straight forward to build a pot.

      Flop: You must c-bet. Both for balance (when you do not hit), for protect and for building a pot.

      3bet preflop with KK to 1.2$. you want in increase the pot size with this monster hand.

      I rather take an aggressive line there instead of slow playing it.
      There is a FD on the flop and a backdoor FD can get there too if the river is a spade.
      In this case if you would taken an aggressive line he would pay you off anyway with his TPTK on the flop and with his top two pair on the river.

      You are losing a lot a value by slow playing hands in NL10.

      What he wanted to say is that minraise is very bad preflop (not minraise preflop is always bet), don't do that! Always do normal raises, so 3x his raise.
