      Flop is classic spot between bet and see what happens vs check. The better you know your opponent's tendencies (and the weaker he is), the better checking is.

      I think your bet is fine, but you need to be prepared to c/c some Turns vs floats like KT KJ JT and flush draws. Bad thing though, is that your hand blocks many of these potential draws (KsXs or KJ KT)

      His PF range should be weighted towards suited broadways, some mid-pairs, and maybe pot-controlled QQ/JJ/AQ. Remember you are slightly deep. And your 4bet is pretty huge so I don't expect him to have too many speculative stuff actually. This, coupled with the fact that you have Ks, makes me want to c/f Turn more often actually but if let's say stacks were deep and you made a 2X 4bet and opponent is notorious for calling 4bets, then I think you can expect to get floated a ton and you should be more inclined to c/c Turn.
