      Hello BigAl123456,

      Your play is totally fine since we don't really want to Check/Fold on A high board with our pretty strong hand like KK, so being OOP Betting out is totally fine. Also the opponent may be aggressive enough even to Bet himself if he Check for example on flop with JJ or something similar when he does see us just Checking.

      Best regards.
