      I checked this one down because of the flush on the board, but is it ok to bet some more on the turn/river?

      Hello brazyd,

      Preflop: You could also raise it up here with KQs since it's pretty good against their Calling range. But it ain't wrong if you want to play such hands when you are OOP passively.
      Turn: Since it's more unlikely to have him Kx type of hand there because we have one K he could easily be on a draw so Check/Calling is totally fine here since we don't want to get raised and will try to hit on river our FH. But it wouldn't be wrong to bet out either since his stack is pretty small.
      River: Bet for value since he didn't show any aggression on turn, he wont bet the river either, more likely just Check behind weaker PPs.

      Best regards.
