      Cbetting CAN make sense but I think your default should be to check/fold on such a board that smacks their range.. QTs, QJ, KQ, AQ, 88, JT, flushdraws.. just not likely they both fold OR that they call with worse.. If you bet here and they call with worse they probably don't let you go to showdown anyway. That's the biggest problem of your hand imo: playability.. You might be ahead here somewhat often and also might get called by weaker (though not enough of the time imo) but you never realize the equity you have.
