Default Should I c-bet this flop?

Full Tilt Poker
No Limit Holdem Ring game
Blinds: $0.50/$1
5 players
Converter

Stack sizes:
UTG: $170
CO: $111.80
Button: $30.60
SB: $28.60
Hero: $113.50

Pre-flop: (5 players) Hero is BB with K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]
UTG folds, <font color="#cc0000">CO raises to $3.5</font>, <font color="#cc0000">Button raises to $6</font>, SB calls, <font color="#cc0000">Hero raises to $30</font>, CO folds, Button calls, <font color="#cc0000">SB calls all-in $22.6</font>.

Flop: 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 9[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] ($92.1, 2 players + 1 all-in - Main pot: $89.3, Sidepot 1: $2.8)
<font color="#cc0000">Hero bets $1</font>, <font color="#cc0000">Button calls all-in $0.6</font>.
Uncalled bets: $0.4 returned to Hero.

Turn: K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] ($93.3, 1 player + 2 all-in - Main pot: $89.3, Sidepot 1: $4)


River: 9[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] ($93.3, 1 player + 2 all-in - Main pot: $89.3, Sidepot 1: $4)


Results:
Final pot: $93.3
Button showed K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]
SB showed A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
Hero showed K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]

Button somehow loses with two face cards
SB loses with the best possible hand
Hero wins $93.30 with Kings full of Nines

What I like about this hand
<ul type="square">[*] SB failed to raise with AA.[*] Button traps for his last $0.60 just to make sure he doesn't miss out on anything 59-cent McD's cheeseburger night has to offer.[*] I minbet $1 into a pot of $92.10 so the guy who's coaching me doesn't ask why I didn't c-bet.[*] nice one-outer[*] No one even has a flush redraw just to get their hopes crushed when the spade hits but pairs the board.[/list]

[/ QUOTE ]

So the "Beat" part comes when I hit my one-outer. We get to the "Brag" part because at least two and maybe all three of the players involved played it like complete jackasses and I got to win. "Variance" is kinda a combination of the first two. Hope that helps.

Given the action, I think button should flop.
