      You have the best hand. He has 0% EQ.
      By donking almost pot size you eliminate his every potential bluff he is pulling. And we want him to bluff here a lot because on a dry flop like this his value range is very narrow as is his drawing range.
      After you show so much aggresion he migh even call AK just once and fold to river barrel.

      So to sum it up we want to keep his value range in and his air. And by donking we do opposit. If he checks turn he is always on air or very weak hand amd you can check behind to let him catch up.

      Question is would a passive 65/14 player bluff again?
      Haven't seen too much from him.
      Just hoped on turn that he can't get off his Kx and build pot.

      if you don´t think he would not let go Kx, then c/min-raise flop to then pot half pot on the turn and finally shove river. If you c/c flop I would prefer c/r turn to let him bet again his air
