      CO ($27.56)
      BTN ($55.44)

      Dealt to Hero K:spade: K:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to $2, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $1.75, BB calls $1.50

      FLOP ($6) A:diamond: 2:heart: T:club:

      SB checks, BB checks, Hero ??

      Cbet is out of the question here. I don't like the A at all, but i don't think we have much choice but to go broke here.

      Why?

      There are absolutely no scare cards for you and you have showdown value with KK. If you shove it here it will just result in you being called with Ax hands which is -EV.

      I would just try to check it down or you can consider catching some bluffs here if you find villains too aggressive. On the other hand if you bet yourself you turn your hand into a bluff where no better hand will fold and no worse will call you.
