      You should c-bet that flop to balance your play. You want your opponents to fold to your c-bets on such flops with low pp or pure bluffs.

      Pair flop is very good for c-bet against two opponents.

      If you check with strong hand on such flops, how can your bluff bet be respected?

      Flop: CBet because you are also CBetting with bluff here.
      Turn: Bet/Call and reevaluate river.
      River: Most likely call his bet and you wouldn't lose that much money.

      Please remove results next time.

      Best regards,

      I´d likely bet flop, because don´t expect that anmy pp-s would fold, and if he has Tx, then I want him to give chance of c/r flop.
      Also he can c/r flop as a bluff and continue his bluff on the turn and river.
      I´d likely also bet/call turn, because his line is very strong and call him down.
