      Not sure what to do on the flop here. As the board is rather drawy, I decide to still do a Cbet and get value from draws. I also want to avoid to get bluffed out of the pot, not sure if that's a good reason though.

      What do you think about the flop, Cbet or not? How to play from there?

      Hey MoneyStef,

      In most cases the best option will be to check and usually check/call at least once.

      In a small amount of situations cbetting KK on Axx may be good. Typically this would be to extract value on drawy boards - but there is a reasonable chance opponent may semi-bluff with draws anyway.

      Unless you are certain betting KK on Axx is good, I would check 90% of the time, including this board - in most cases you will get action from a wider range this way.
