      Preflop: Hero is CO with 4 A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BTN calls $1.25, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.25) K A 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($3.25) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, BTN folds

      Final Board: K A 3 8
      Hero mucked 4 A and won $3.10 ($1.85 net)

      I sometimes hear 1- "cbet as as you would cbet your entire range like 22 to fold out better PPs", other times I hear 2-"you are not planning to get 3 street of value, you might as well strenght your c/c range and let villain autovalue bet himself". Other related question, should I have a c/c range flop in these kind of boards? And should I have a c/f range?

      From CO you should c/f here sometimes imo and check/call as well. It's different from when you open like 12% from UTG and smack this board like there's no tomorrow. From CO you have more air and BU has more Ax, Kx that don't fold to one bet so you should check to fold your complete garbage. If you check to always fold vs a bet it's not good so you need to check to call sometimes. Hands to choose depend on opponent. How likely are you to face barrels? If very likely, have a check/call range that can hold those barrels.. If he bets once IP and then shuts down you can check/call a bit weaker when it comes to 'redraw' potential but still have good showdown value.
