      Hi.

      You might want to think about reasons for betting here. What is your plan for the Turn? Do you intend to fire multiple barrels as a bluff?

      And about the flop bet:
      -Are you betting for value from worse hands? What worse hands are calling you?
      -Are you folding out better hands? Do you expect pocket pairs to fold here to a single bet?

      Thanks.

      So i bet with the NDBD and i think the pp wouldnt fold at 1 bet so my plan were to bet on turn too on a high card T+.
      I think on this flop i am ahead of his range

      Board: 5:heart: 9:diamond: 5:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP1    49.05%  41.57%   7.48% { 77+, AJs+, KQs, AJo+, KQo }
      BU     50.95%  43.47%   7.48% { AdKd }

      So my bet on flop could be also for value from his AX and Kx hands.

      I think it's fine to bet but you must barrel if not.

      Your alternative is to check back and bluff catch with AK high which I also think is fine. Without the backdoor flush draw I would probably be more inclined to check back and bluff catch.
