      Preflop I flatcalled mainly due to implied odds, Villain raised from early position, and we are 135bb deep.
      He can often checkbehind this flop, so I donked out, to protect my hand, and if he raises me, it's all the better.
      On the turn the K could hit his range a lot, but if I barrel he could just call me, so I checked here going for the chR. If he has any kind of made hand / draw, he can bet out to take it down, and I can build the pot more effectively.
      What do you think?

      It is always good to balance out your leading range with sets, so I like your bet with 44.
      I think c/r turn is fine. he would often bet for value and for semibluffs that scare card, so I like c/r for value and although you´re a littlebit deep I would not fold to shove. He has there enough times combo draws or maybe just AK that he would play for stacks

      best regards,

      I disagree with Kaitz, I think betting turn is mandatory and betting flop and c/r turn on this texture is v.bad. In general on the flop we can assume he has some flush draws, some straight draws and alot of OK showdown hands. On the turn when we check, we can assume that he will bet all of his nutted hands, i.e 77, 66, straights that he slowplayed, occasionally his flush draws, and always check back his OK showdown hands (the main range that we dominate) when we bet turn he can think we are representing the very best turn barrel card and because of the numerous flush and straight draws he can call us down light. We also want to get the maximum from these draws and because we can assume he is relatively passive (not raising flop) we have to assume he will check back the turn a decent % of the time.

      I'd just go $4 on the turn and bet almost any river.
