      I don't think checking back flop is all that bad, drawing to the nuts and your hand is well disguised if you hit, although with micro stakes players fold to cbet% being so high, cbetting is obv +EV. On the river your line makes sense and betting is fine.

      Hello adsefghijk,

      Most likely betting the flop is better since we will gain fold equity and of course we still have couple of outs even. :) We also gain a secure card most likely for the river where we can Check it behind on the turn.

      But as played I would just Check it behind on the river since I doubt that we are making any pair to fold anyways and all those hands what fold we beat with K high.

      Best Regards.
