      iPoker - $0.50 NL - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $32.15
      CO: $72.75
      BTN: $33.73
      Hero (SB): $82.12
      BB: $50.75 VP:21/PR:18/AFq:56/FoldBB to steal:81%. over 3000 hands
      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has K:heart: K:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.50, BB calls $1.00

      Flop: ($3.00, 2 players) A:spade: Q:spade: 6:club:
      Hero checks, BB bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00

      Turn: ($7.00, 2 players) 3:club:
      Hero checks, BB bets $4.90, fold

      CBet is better here since A and Q could hit my range and then give up?

      It is a really unhappy flop for us. Your hand will be really hard to play in this spot OOP.

      The easy approach is B/F flop, C/F turn. With some more information on the BB maybe there is something more we could do.

      don´t really like line c/c flop, c/f turn
      If you want to play pot control then I think you should at least call turn bet and even possible river
      I would likely bet/fold flop (if player is really aggressive then b/c flop), then c/c turn and finally decide if I want to call him down
      often I get free showdown with AT and weaker Ax hands, since I would likely take that line also with AJ and he is usually just betting with his bluffs or AQ+
