      Just make a normal c-bet on the flop, you'll get some value from draws/ worse Kx and whatever 43/13 & 62/28 players can show up with. Of course sometimes you'll run into Ax but it's not a big deal, i doubt they're raise the flop too often with those. If they've been kinda aggressive postflop you can check it back and call a bet on the turn unless the action gets crazy.

      Once you get called on the flop think of your hand as a ~5-outer especially if both of them called, it's very likely one of them has Ax, so try and take a showdown unimproved. Value-bet when you improve, K is obviously the best card, it might get dicey if you get action on a J.

      Hope it helps.
