      I would prefer c-bet, since:
      - you c-bet that board close 100% with your air, so it would be nice if you have there also pair in your ranges and players don´t really attack that board too often that you should turn your hand into bluff catcher
      - It is very likely he would call with worse hands like KJ, QJ and either bets his floats on the turn or checks down or betting small medium strength hands
      - if you start c/c it is very easy to play against you and players can either bluff you out smt like overbets or valudown relentless, since you alway have there weak Ax or KK/Qx. So you´re always guessing but they know your exact hand. very hard to play that position oop.
      As played: I think you should b/c turn if you´re not c/c river. Players mostly doesn´t really min-raise bluff there that you should continue with your hand

      yes, since hands that he is raising turn are ahead your KQ. Only question is if you should consider any implied odds that you can b/c turn and then lead river if you hit for example J, Q, K, but being oop I think best is just b/f turn if you´re not going to showdown

      I also cbet. Most of the time we are ahead here anyway, but if we ch/c on flop we are just guessing. Only thing for sure is: villain knows our hand is not very strong (otherwise we would always protect).

      As played b/f turn since we cant continue against unknown villain (well, if we do we are just guessing).
