you're starting with the 2nd best hand in hold'em, KK.

preflop: You need to me making a std raise here to help conceal your hand. I don't like the min-raise at all here. All the min raise does is raise a red flag about your hand and lets too many people draw cheap, that can beat you.

flop: you get a set with a flush draw and 3 opps in the pot. You need to make a value bet here and you make a 200 bet (1/2's pot), which is a bit low.... 3/4's pot is ok, pot size is better, since you have 3 opps in the hand. You want to build the pot, but keep the opps in (but make it -EV for them to stay).

turn: the flush and OESD both hit with the 9. It's a good thing you timed out, because that's a cooler for KK, although, if you'd have bet more preflop and on the flop, the opp would have NOT been priced in to draw at you and could have folded.

You want to have action with KK, but you need to size your bets so that you make it -EV for the opps to draw at you, not make small bets and have it +EV for the opps.
