      Hi.

      Preflop: If you have some reads on the fishes, raising could be good. But checking should be standard without reads. I'll raise K9s+ though, as well as any broadway hand.

      Flop: Check/fold is fine on such a coordinated Flop.

      Turn: Definitely lead the Turn for value now and I would bet pot. You get two callers which is not a great situation for you.

      River: Raising river doesn't make sense unless you want to turn your hand into a bluff and try folding out stronger kings which I don't really like. I think there's a good chance that one of them has some sort of busted draw.

      Can you value bet here? I think it's possible - I'll half pot the river. Reason being I think they don't have too many KT KJ KQ AK in their ranges when they did not raise preflop, and are likelier to have weaker KX hands or maybe some QX hands.
