Villain first hand, small stack

Why it is correct to do CB?

PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://flopturnriver.com/

Button ($2.74)
SB ($7.65)
BB ($2.97)
UTG ($7.53)
MP ($5)
Hero (CO) ($5.20)

Preflop: Hero is CO with J, J
2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, Button calls $0.15, 2 folds

Flop: ($0.37) K, 6, 9 (2 players)

You can c-bet this one to prevent being bluffed, since you're OOP. Against passive players, I'd often check-call, however, and only give them credit for Kx+ if they also bet the turn.

Agreed. I prefer cbetting OOP because its so hard to play a capped range OOP.

If you check/call hands like K2s etc on this kind of board, you can check/call JJ for balance but its probably not a big deal at 5nl.

I'm probably x/c-ing KJ/KT and QQ (sometimes x/c or x/r with sets for pure randomness). Cbetting AK/KQ, JJ,TT, 99, 66, 87s, QJ, etc

I'm betting all the smaller underpairs as a "dead money grab". I want to win the pot right immediately. With stuff like 22, you have so little equity (you're basically flipping with any two overs) that if you can get villain to fold hands with 50% equity, that's a great result. If you're not gonna c-bet with hands like 33, then what's the point in raising pre-flop? You won't hit a set often enough to make money, so you have to "bluff" too.
