      On the flop should I protect my hand agaist flush?
      I think my kicker is to weak to raise, because there are better hands which will beat me, and I don't won't to kick out worse.

      Turn I bet, for value and protection. To take pot here is fine as well.
      River bet fold value/fold to reraise.

      I'm not a fan of your pre-flop call. Unless the guy on the button is stealing al lot I think I would just fold this. KJo is probably ahead of a good player's stealing range there but it's still not a brillaint hand to play oop.

      Your bet line here is just so messed up. You're being passive pre-flop & on the flop but then on the turn you just take initiative all of a sudden eventhou you haven't shown strength so far. Think about it, if you really did hit that flush on the turn, would you have bet it? You probably would've gone for the check/raise there so why do you bet here?

      Either I'd go for check/call all the way to showdown or I'd just donk the flop straight away and take initiatif.

      I don't think your preflop call was that bad. No real comment on the hand. What is your BR?

      His hand range from lp is so wide, that not playing KJ seems to be a lose of money.
      I had doubts about preflop. Calling oop is bad, but KJ is to dominated to 3bet.

      I also don´t like playing KJ oop, maybe you can 3-bet and take pot down rigth there
      Your turn line looks like a flush, so if you get raised on the river you can fold.
      I´d likely c/c turn and evaluate on the river
