      I thought if I bet only Kx would call.

      Hello,

      I prefer bet/bet/bet here.
      By checking we give him a chance to check back his weak hands and only bet his better and we are not sure if he bluffs busted draws.

      Best,
      Plamen

      When I bet, I get called by Kx and another better weaker hand would fold.

      If I check, some weaker hand might bet like this.

      still bet is fine?

      Hey,

      I believe I've misread the board here, but still I think if we check then we should be check/folding against passive opponent.

      In this spot, I would rather give up as we don't really get called by too much worse.
