      I am not sure if cbet is ok here? I have nice showdown value, but if he calls he calls almost always with better on this board. If I check he often bluffs, but I am not sure if he bluffs more streets and my play is weak in general.

      Hey,

      You have to strongly consider positions.. BvB he is snapping you off 2 streets with Kx and checking it back on river imo while at the same time vbets too thinly and bluffs often because you look like not having Ax in his eyes almost ever. If you were UTG vs MP it's totally different.. way tighter perceived ranges, your hand becomes a lot weaker and also less playable. Here you can go bet/bet/check or check/call way for 2 streets, there shouldn't be much difference and it all depends on what you think is best for your range and image.
