      When you bet the flop, you pretty much isolate yourself against Ax hands (or better). If you check, he might get the idea to bet QQ/JJ/TT, so depending on his tendencies, I would either check/fold or check/call flop.

      Since you don´t have to protect against draws I like checking back flop and turn and then valuebetting river 4$
      If he bets turn and river I´m not going to fold KK
