      All-In Flop, the King is a good scare card for Villain and often he is holding a medium Pocket Pair or a hand like AQ or AJ and has to fold.

      Your Calldown is not good.

      I thought about pushing, but can´t put MP 2 at any kind hand. There were two limpers, so his hand range is large- he might hold Kx, or lower pocket pair. Not sure I want to get stacked on that flop. I think that 2$ contibet should give me some kind of information if he is holding K or not.

      Your C-Bet should $3 so its nearly the rest of your stack. Thats why I often push directly. But psychological it could be good as well just to C-Bet $3. $2 isn´t enough here, since it only would be half pot size = you have nothing for most opponents.
