      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:club: , J:club:
      4 folds, CO calls $0,02, BU folds, SB calls $0,01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,06) 5:diamond: , 3:heart: , 5:heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $0,04, 2 folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,06

      I thought to pot it and try to steal after SB checked. Stil, I've checked it, but I wont to know what do you think about it?

      I think isolating is fine here. On that flop I might actually lead out as a bluff, it's a very hard board to hit and people can't really continue unless they have overpairs flushdraws or a random 5x type hand.

      Mind you if I'm betting the flop I'm betting the turn as standard.
      Anyway, your play was fine but I think isolating needs to be considered here before we check.

      Limps are weak by definition, and it is 100% ok to raise it up there with KJs, you'll take the pot down often or find yourself in a pot with a good top pair hand that most likely crushes these players' ranges for open limping.

      Repop it to $0.10 or $0.12, and call a shove from the shorty SB since his line wouldn't make much sense at that point, except maybe "whatever, i'm tired of getting raised, i'm all-in".

      Hope it helps.
