      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:diamond: , 8:diamond:
      CO raises to $1,00, Hero raises to $3,00, 2 folds, CO calls $2,00.

      Flop: ($6,75) K:club: , 8:heart: , 3:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $6,75, Hero raises to $16,00, CO calls $9,25.

      Turn: ($38,75) 2:club: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero ?

      -I guess my preflop raise could be considered strange
      As played:
      -i didnt find the decision hard when i played the hand but im not sure i played it right here. He can call us with worse hands like Kx with flushdraw.
      But if we bet here we are comittet and his flopplay looks pretty much like a flushdraw.

      I'd check behind turn because i don't want to fold top two against that villain.
      If river is non-club you can call his bet and if he checks you can valuebet.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      3-bet ip is very standard with your hand. You can´t call, but you can easily 3-bet to isolate player and use your positional advantage.
      I would likely raise bigger to 18$ or 20$
      I think check behind on the turn is a little better line, since if he has there Kx or maybe AA then he might fold to your turn bet and ofcourse he´d c/rai set and flush.
      If river is blank you can call his bet, even if he pots it and if he checks, you can valuebet yourself half pot.
