check any flop that isn't good for a c-bet, and check more often if your PF raise got more than one caller.
Flops good for a c-bet are:
-any you hit a decent pair or better on (obv)
-dry boards, especially with one high card such as A or K
-wet flops that you hit a draw on
-virtually all flops when you are heads up ESPECIALLY if in position and it's checked to you
You can also look at the FoldtoCbet% stat if you use an HUD to try and get a likelyhood that they will fold to a c-bet bluff

This article helped me a lot when I began to get raised and check-raised out of pots that I began with strong hands pre-flop and thought that I should just c-bet any flop just because I was the pre-flop aggressor.
thats is very tough to answer it pends on postion and opponents. Tight table ill bet every flop, loose table i will want to connect more. You raise pre with AK HU flop comes 2 73 I bet, flops comes 9TJ i prob check(prob check cause ill still bet if i feel opponent missed). The only thing i can say is i will constantly mix it up sometimes ill check flop i miss and sometimes i bet missed flop, if i hit flop i most always bet.
