      Good flop for cbet, so I call, because he does not necesarry has an ace.

      Now on turn, I could check back, because if I bet I am turning my hand into a bluff. And it would suck if I get raised. On the other hand - he goes to a showdown a lot, so he might want to call with KJ, because he thinks I am bluffing. And one more good thing - I can hope free river.

      So what do you think - is it better to bet turn, or check? If I check, I guess I will have to call on the river, because I don't put him on many aces, if he has ace, he should bet turn for protection.

      - personally prefer betting, since if he would give up that spot sm like T9s he would not really going to c/c river or bet himself if he hits his T or 9 and most of the times he would go anyway either on pot control with worse hand or c/f hands that has sometimes some equity against your KQ.
      + you can then always take your free showdown once you bet/fold half potsize on the turn.
