      I dont get why u didnt bet the Flop. And if you didnt bet the flop the turn is a great card to bluff at (we represent QQ really well when we check flop).

      The board isnt too coordinated, K and 8 are disconnected cards with no straight draws. you only have some 87 67 56 type of hands which connect with this flop. Given that its King high and you are the 3better, you will get a lot of credit for having AK and KQ.

      If you check this flop as the PFR against someone who is decent at hand reading (he could read your check as something like JJ QQ K2s) then you definitely should bet the Turn cos we would expect him to bet flop with his stronger KX hands like KQ.
