      2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.10, 3 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.50, CO folds.

      Flop: ($1.45) 6:heart: , K:spade: , K:heart: (2 players)

      UTG+2 bets $1.60, Hero folds.

      I didn't like this flop, it was bad to me as a lot of players tend to limp in with Kx. Additionally there was a flush draw. Even an ace would not likely help me here.

      conti bet is to small.
      should be between 0.9$ and 1$

      unimproved you fold your Hand on the Turn, like you did

      EDIT: sry I just saw your Stack is >25BB

      I wouldn't play AJ then
      maybe only first in on the BU to steal the blinds

      When you have more then 25 BB, its better only to play AA and KK anymore before you blind out, since with standard raises preflop you can not protect against Pocket Pairs to call your raise anymore.

      Like played your C-Bet is to small as said, but giving up on the Turn is good.

      The flopped looked scary enough that I'm pretty sure I was beat, which was why I didn't make a large con. bet

      But the Flop looks scary to your Opponent as well, unless he holds 66 or a King (or maybe a Flushdraw). We always make the same amount of C-Bet (or push if your stack is to small in comparison to the pot), so that our Opponent can not read us.

      Every hand that has no made hand or the FD has to fold here. Even 88 or 99 should fold here, because when you make a 2/3 C-Bet its also possible that you hold an Overpair, where only 66 and a K beats you now. But by only betting less then 172 of the Pot even a FD can call here profitable.
