      For this hand I don't like the delay cbet. I would just give up. The thing is that you don't represent anything after checking the Flop and we know that MP and CO both have many mid pocket pair type of hands.

      Would they fold to a single bet? I don't think so.

      If I wanted to bet the Turn (repping a monster which missed a CR on the Flop), I would bet larger on the Turn and then bet many rivers, especially flush completing ones (since we can pretend to be going for a CR with AhKh) and I don't think he can call. I probably prefer to have Ah or Qh in my hand to make such a play, to reduce the chances that they somehow have a flush draw played passively on the flop.
