      On turn I'm trying to encourage flushdraw and Kx to play against me. Any other way to handle this hand?

      You do not want Kx to play against you, your behind vs that.

      Bet the flop higher, like 4.5$ and re-present the K. (even if you get raised now by CO or by BB it doesn't matter, you loose less money this way then any other way)

      Because here is the thing... if I am BU and you bet like that I will raise you a lot of times (depending on what I think of BB player) w/o having K because I know your on flush draw. I remember one hand very clearly, guy bets into me like that but I have the A-high flush draw... I raise it (wrong amount giving him odds I think) so he puts me on top pair which he does and calls. Turn completes the flush and I stack him.

      On that turn check behind since you have showdown value now but your opponent still thinks you have K.

      On the river if your flush draw does not hit just call opponent bet (depending on size and river card) if he does one since your hand got showdown value.

      I´d also like bigger flop bet to 5$
      If you´re comfortable b/c when BB decides to shove then betting turn is ok.
      Since you hold top pair and nut draw, then c/c is also one option.
      checking river is ok and then likely folding to big bet.
