no way would I push or raise the flop with that borad. Way too many hands that can beat you (higher kicker, made straight, overpair, set) already, let alone the draws. Just call their bet and muck to a raise.

Do we really wanna be in this pot with KJo? What are we hoping to hit KKx KJx JJx? Kxx is rarely good after raise so is Jxx. Blinds are 15/30 I would look better spot to play. Fold Preflop.

Flop reraise is horrible, considering that preflop raiser is behind you. in overall badly played.
