Poker Should I have been able to get away from this?

    Hey all,

    So I was wondering what some on your thoughts on this hand are and if you would be able to get away from it. To set the situation it's the first hand in a 45 man regular blind length SNG.

    PokerStars - 10/20 Ante 3 NL - Holdem - 9 players


    Hero (BTN): 75 BB
    SB: 75 BB
    BB: 75 BB
    UTG: 75 BB
    UTG+1: 75 BB
    MP: 75 BB
    MP+1: 75 BB
    MP+2: 75 BB
    CO: 75 BB

    9 players post ante of 0 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

    Pre Flop: (pot: 2.85 BB) Hero has K♦ A♦

    fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 9.5 BB, fold, fold, CO calls 6.5 BB

    Flop: (21.85 BB, 2 players) K♣ J♦ J♠
    CO checks, Hero bets 11.5 BB, CO raises to 65.35 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 53.85 BB and is all-in

    Turn: (152.55 BB, 2 players) Q♥

    River: (152.55 BB, 2 players) 6♣

    CO shows Q♠ K♥ (Two Pair, Kings and Queens)

    Hero shows K♦ A♦ (Two Pair, Kings and Jacks)

    CO wins 152.55 BB

    Obviously it didn't end up working out for me on this hand but I'm wondering if I should be able to fold on the flop or if this is just one of the "if you have one of the few combos that beat me I'm just going to ship my stack to you."
