      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:diamond: , K:club:
      UTG2 calls $0,02, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0,12, UTG2 calls $0,10.

      Hi Mrschh,

      I will mostly not cBet this board in position but as you are OOP you are more or less forced to bet $0.15. Your cBet sizing is a bit too low in my opinion

      If he raises you I can safely say he isn't doing it with QQ-99 nor with K9,Q9,T9,98
      He sometimes does it with a naked flushdraw but the majority of the time you are facing Ax hence KK is a trash hand

      So I will cBet/fold here

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Thank you for the reply,

      Betsize was made because the was nothing to protect against. Possibly a flushdraw, but nothing else. Either im way ahead or far behind against anything else. If im in position and he bets into me then?

      Thanks

      Can you use the ''ask the judge to review this hand again'' feature next time , it would be very helpful as I do not scout the threads again because I have a lot of boards to scout :)

      You either bet for value/protection or you bet as a bluff
      Since you do not really to protect from FD since you have a redraw , I would check back and get my value on the Turn/River

      If you are IP and he bets into you , it depends how much
