1/2 Can I c bet here or nah?

1/2, table is very passive. Everybody here is pretty loose and stacks range from $50 to 250.

Hero (290, no real image) is on the CO with A♣️T♠️.

2 limpers, folded around to hero who raises to 15. Button (semi tight, 100ish stack) calls, BB calls (fish on a heater, 400 stack), one of the limpers (fish not on a heater, 150 stack) calls (other folds obv)

Flop (~60): K♦️2♠️3♣️

Everyone checks, Hero ??

Can I make a bet of around 30 and rep AK or some other big pair? Or is the combination of a 4 way pot + high passiveness enough to make checking a better play?

Yeah I don't hate betting 1/2 pot, it will also allow you to see both turn and river most likely. The board being like it is, a lot of suited connectors missed. Your only worry is button. I think either way is fine, bet or check are pretty close in EV so pick whatever you want / image / live reads. I'd lean towards checking though as betting often as a bluff here is unbalanced.

Re: 1/2 Can I c bet here or nah?

rainbow King high board looks good to me. Obviously the more players in the pot the worse your odds of folding anyone out so keep that in mind for future instances where this happens and there's even *more* players in the pot. But I think in this situation give it one pump and youre done. Annnnnd checking and just giving up immediately isnt the worst thing either since you know, it's live, lot of stations, lot of fish, easily find better spots.

This is one of the few good boards to c-bet bluff 4way. I would size a little smaller like $25. Your equity when called isn't great, but you can decide whether to double barrel Q's and J's depending on who calls/live reads.

No. If you're c-betting this board here, you're way overbluffing this flop.

You have a lot of better hands like Axss with backdoors, even A4/A5s no backdoors, double backdoor broadways.

So basically C Betting is a go. Sounds good, thanks everyone

SPOILER FOR THOSE INTERESTED:
Hero bets 30, button calls, BB calls, everyone else folds. BB leads out for 25 on 6♣️ turn and BU moves all in. Hero says have fun and folds. BB calls and turns over AA, BB turns over K3o and holds
