      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with K :diamond: J :diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 5 :spade: 3 :club: 7 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.75) A :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BTN calls $0.50

      River: ($1.75) 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      So is this a good spot for a delayed cBet? Might even be ahead of some passively played FDs (not likely since opponent is not exactly the most passive guy)

      Hello Avatars91,

      Assuming that the guy has a lot of Ax hands in his Check behind range I'd rather be just Check/Folding the turn. If he didn't show interest into the pot on the flop then he could easily just Check behind weaker hands on the turn as well and we are ahead vs them anyways with our K high.

      Best Regards.

      If our hand was weaker than K high (say, almost no chance of being ahead in showdown), would betting the turn not be an option? Villain can have Ax, that is true, but there are also other hands in his range that he might fold. It's just that his line on the flop looks somewhat weak (he should protect his stronger hands)

      Don't try to overplay loose opponents. ;) So, nah not really.
