      Not sure how to approach this spot in general.

      If I cbet, I'm not in a great spot OTT, he calls at least once with TT-QQ imo & I don't think I can barrel turn for value.

      If I check flop & he check behind I can v bet turn & maybe get to SD.
      I sometimes check this flop with Ax with a :diamond: so I don't think my hand is too face up.

      What do you think about having a c/c range here?

      I think I'm leaning more toward cbetting in this particular hand, maybe if I had the K :diamond: I would be more inclined to c/c with a bit of backdoor equity.

      SB: $55.89 (223.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $25.47 (101.9 bb)
      UTG: $41.75 (167 bb)
      MP: $19.19 (76.8 bb)
      CO: $6.20 (24.8 bb)
      BTN: $39.65 (158.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      UTG raises to $0.75, 3 folds, SB calls $0.65, Hero raises to $3.10, UTG calls $2.35, SB folds

      Flop: ($6.95) 7 6 A (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $3, Hero calls $3

      Turn: ($12.95) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $5, Hero folds

      $12.95 pot ($0.64 rake)
      Final Board: 7 6 A 5
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$6.10 net)
      UTG mucked and won $12.31 ($6.21 net)

      Both options are fine, but what's more important is how you play your ranges in these spots. Do you check AK/AQ/AX sometimes?

      as played I don't mind betting once, without too much history I'm not too sure how to approach this spot. And I agree that having KdKx makes it easier to c/c Flop and Turn.

      As played I think you are going to get a shove on the River a lot with your exact hand so I don't see any point in c/c Turn again.
