      Flop: I would usually check here by default. You are in position and you only need to play the Turn and River so this is going to be much easier to play in position.

      Also you have K which reduces the combos of hands which villain can float you on the flop with.

      If you want to bet here, it should be for thin value, meaning that you expect to be ahead of a calling range. Thus, you would need to bluff catch on a wide variety of rivers (especially when everything misses).
