      Let's not discuss the posibility of limping instead of raising preflop as I currently play strictly according to my SHC. I do understand that it's probably better to just limp here.

      As played preflop:
      I should not cbet as there aren't many hands limp/calling that I would fold out.
      However, when/if he checks on the turn, I could bet 1/2 pot turn and river to rep a king and could fold out 22-77 and Ax, Qx that don't have a K.

      1. Is my reasoning correct here?

      Flop - it's dry and there are many non paired hands and non Ax hands that could fold so I think cb is good here.

      Turn and river - I'll just ggive up because when he calls he usually has some sort of pair or at least Ax and I don't think he's folding a full house ever. Qx and Ax might fold but I think we would need to bet both turn and river and I think a good part of his range is pairs so i prefer checking and giving iimmediately on the turn
