      I think bet / fold should be good. If he calls to your bet again on turn, check/fold river.

      A raise preflop (~0.20) would be good here to reduce the number of opponents.

      It's BB I thought a button at first, never the less, KJ fairly good hand 2 high cards offsuit the less opponents the better. What do u think?

      I think it's really horrible to play KJo OOP vs 2 or so villains, so check pf is fine.

      Hi timukasr!

      I agree with degnic. A check preflop is fine because you don't want to play in a raised pot against two or more opponents out of position.
      Your flop play is fine, too. But on the turn I would play bet/fold because the ace can also be a scarecard for your opponents, not only for you ;) If you get raised you have an easy fold. If you get called, check/fold river is the correct move imo.

      Good luck at the tables!
