      Flop is not THAT rubbish because he will play quite honest.

      I think cbet once for thin value and check down is OK. You basically don't make a mistake when cbetting here imo because he just folds often enough. When he doesn't fold he calls worse hands than KK sometimes but also better so the value is quite thin. If you had the Kc I would learn more towards not cbetting because now you have way more equity and depending on your overall plans and who you are facing I'd say check/raising or check/calling will be better than cbetting quite often with that hand since you are OOP. Mostly I would say check/raising works well with your 9 + 2 outs with the dead money in the pot. If flop gets checked through you have a decent showdown value and see another card which is not a bad result at all.
