      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $21.24
      SB:
      $12.46
      BB (Hero):
      $29.84
      MP2:
      $26.40
      MP3:
      $24.82
      CO:
      $22.37


      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, K.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.75, 3 folds, Hero raises to $3.00, MP3 calls $2.25.

      Flop: ($6.1) J, 4, A (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, MP3 calls $3.50.

      Turn: ($13.1) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($13.1) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.


      Villain's stats:
      Hands: 40
      VPIP: 27
      PFR: 19
      Agr: 1.0


      On the flop pot is already 6$, if I c-bet 1/2PSB,
      then it is way too big for my KK ... ?
      I guess, as this is very passive Villain, then b/f flop is fine,
      then ch/f on later streets, if I get called (unless I hit K. but K :diamond: ?)
      After he called my flop c-bet, I can put him on any Ace except AK,
      because I have KK. (AT-AQ, pairs like - QQ, TT)


      I don't like my situation on the T, simply because I'm OOP
      and now Villain can push me out of the pot with any two.


      Is it a good play to check on the F, just to control pot somehow?
      How would you play this pot against:
      1) aggressive opponent;
      2) passive opponent ?

      if you start c/c flop then villain knows that you don´t have anything and can still barrel you off on your hand.
      So I also like b/f flop is player is passive, when he is aggressive you can choose b/c or b/f
      If you b/c then you can decide on the turn if you want to c/ra thinking he is bluffing enough times and usually isn´t raising with Ax.
      But players usually doesn´t make too many moves there and I´d expect they would most of the times either call or fold
