      Hey Dzikson999,

      Cbetting the flop will be fine. Sizing is good, you don't want to make it too much larger when you block Kx and villain often misses the board.

      Turn is a legitimate spot to check imo. Villain can bluff with a wider range than he will call with. He never has a Kx now, and he may not feel comfortable calling with FD on paired board, yet he can bluff with any draws in his range.

      Vs a hand like 55-TT you don't really lose a lot of value by checking because you usually can only get one more street anyway.

      If we assume villain is ultra passive fish and will never bluff, and you wanted to bet anyway, a small sizing works best here. You have the board locked up + villains range is likely very weak. You actually want him to call with a weak draw and improve so he can pay you off on the river.
