      I think on that flop given BU's range your play should be to check. As a cold 3bettor, whenther you were bluffing pre or not, you have many Kx in your range therefore it will be close to impossible for you to get value since you are percevied as very strong. Knowing this, it means when you get called you are screwed and if you don't get called you were miles ahead anyway.

      BUs range there can be QQ+, AK for sure (I would not discount premiums) and also medium pairs up to JJ imo, KQ, KJs, QJs and most of the suited broadways and connectors. Basically, he has about 90% of what he raises there preflop because he is protected against a 5bet given CO's stack.
