      CO will raise with a lot of hands to steal blinds. raise him a little more because KK is a great hand, get as much money in it as possible.

      make flop bet a little higher to protect more against flushdraw. u are only behind a few hands. i would push here.

      I think i would push too on those limits...
      More often that not you are in front in this situation, a fold to his raise would be -EV in my opinion.

      He could easily just be chasing out the flushdraw with top pair or a gutshot

      looks like one of those

      A :heart: Q :heart: or at least one :heart:

      or a good pair and a reraise because the FLUSH looks scary to him too

      maybe even

      I would still rather call and make a good bet on almost any TURN-CARD again
      ( esp. as we dont have the K :heart: - which would increase your EQ around 3%)
      ( I know it depends on how CO see you ... e.g. if u foldet 1-2 hands after a good re-raise a call might look more scary to him - coz he knows you would only do that if you have a hand )
