      Betting out on the turn is better, I think, as it is a good way to represent an underpair to the board, or a delayed contibet.

      Check flop, checkraise turn is dumb, right?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $37.10
      CO:
      $25.00
      BU:
      $29.50
      SB:
      $25.00
      BB:
      $18.05
      UTG2:
      $15.90
      MP1(Hero):
      $25.00
      MP2:
      $14.25


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, K.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, 2 folds, CO calls $1.00, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($3.1) K, K, A (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($3.1) 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $2.05, BB folds, Hero raises to $5.10, CO calls $3.05.

      River: ($13.3) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, CO calls $7.00.

      Final Pot: $27.3.

      PS: my fancy play cost me $12. SO ANGRY with myself for missing so much value in these situations with fancyplay.

      I'd just bet bet bet on this board as the pfa to get value from Ax , Kx , FD and SD.
      It's NL25 - no need to get fancy.

      As played on the flop I'd bet the turn myself , if you want to c/r make it bigger, at least 6$. Bet around 3/4 psb on the river.
