      F vs flop cbet 4bp 50% (6)

      Went for showdown value but thinking back I expect to have none. Even if he has smth like AJs he is not going to check it down so would you make a flop cbet? double barrel after he check back flop and mostly defines his range of pps ?

      As you said, you have some showdown value, but likely hand without showdown value (also AJ) would bet at some point, so unless you plan c/c him down then I would rather bet/fold flop 9$ and decide on the turn if I want to bet again half pot.
      You likely get worse hands than Kx fold with your flop and turn bet and since you only have ace high you can always b/f.

      best regards,
