If you check back the flop (not saying I would) you have to call the turn no matter what the card is. If I'm villain here I'm betting my entire range after you check behind on the flop.
If AK folds most of the time to a 3 bet OOP at RP, then it seems some we're behind (TT/99, some chance of AA/KK) and some we're ahead of (JJ, some but not all AK) plus some random stuff on both sides (T9, JT, AT, ect).
And yeah, if I check the flop then I'm planning to call the turn no matter what the card.

This is why I think it's braver to check behind on the flop. We can expect a turn check w air against a passive villain, but RP means not having good reads most of the time.
I like sindri's cbet flop and check behind turn line, kinda combines the value of a cbet being called by worse and possibly induces a river bluff.
I guess I thought if AK flats OOP, then it folds to a c-bet on this flop. But that's where I don't usually play myself so I have no idea, which is why I asked the question.
Because I thought AK folds this flop most times that we bet, then we're only getting money from JJ, as well as getting money in when we're behind. Mind you, combinitorially there are more AK than TT/99, or AA/KK that might flat preflop, so if half of AK flat and half fold pre, and half call a c-bet and half fold the c-bet, ....
