      Wanted to profit from his high bet vs missed cbet and I think that I should've x/r the turn to maximize my value. How would you play it?

      If you take that line you´re always guessing and likely have to call him down even if flush gets there. Not too many players would c/c there kings, so he would likely put you a lot worse hands and would therefore for example bet for value AJ on the river- so imo you can´t fold

      Turn c/r is interesting, but I would rather just call him down- you don´t beat any two pair hands and likely he would not b/c turn too often 88/99/87s and he has to fold all his bluffs+ what would you do if he decides to shove.

      I would bet flop and then might consider c/r turn if he likes to float.

      best regards,
