      I was a bit confused, don't know if I should cbet here, don't think there is too much value, FD probably plays agressive in 3bet pot, and there is no really weaker K in his range, so planned to x/c, and probably x/f turn. Is it okay, or should I x/c turn aswell if I x/c flop? River? My hand looks like TT-QQ, and weak Kx. Can we call here?

      Hi.

      I think your hand is a pretty decent hand to have in your checking range, if you want to play a more balanced style which involves a lot of checking on the Flop with some stronger hands

      As played, our hand is way too under-presented to fold here. Sometimes he has KQ but that's alright. I think he may occasionally value bet KT here, maybe he has some bluffs as well. We also have Ks which blocks combos of flushes from his range which makes the call even easier (can't have KTs KJs KQs).
