      Hello coconauta,

      Flop: I wouldn't say it's very bad to CB here but I'd advice to do when you also have some backdoor draws yourself as FD with A. Therefore rather Check it and leave the pot alone without knowing much about the opponents.

      As played
      Turn: Not much to comment.
      River: Is possible while couple of draws missed and might be even better to Check/Call and at least let him bluff cause we can't be sure if he is even calling with Kx but while with A:dX he will Bet anyways if he isn't too passive.

      Best Regards.
