      Hi everyone,

      Does the texture of the board allows me here to slowplay the flop since the flop is kinda draw-heavy but I still have a great hand with many outs instead of making a c-bet/value-protection bet..

      Thx for any feedback..

      You don't have/need any "outs", you have the effective nuts.

      The only question is whether villain is aggressive enough to bet the turn with bluffs if you check back the flop, and given that he limp/called preflop he's probably either passive or some reg limping a pocket pair that will never ever bluff at that board.

      So I believe it's just best for you to simply go ahead and bet big hoping he caught something, the board is drawy enough for him to show up with a random broadway draw or flushdraw, as well as Qx hands and the remaining K if we're lucky.

      Hope it helps.
