      Please do not check/call here. It is fairly obvious what you have so you have no implied odds. So you need 4.2:1 to make this even profitable but you get 2.5:1

      So if you check, you are mostly check/folding. Now I am more of a barrel player so I tend to 2nd barrel my hand here on the Turn. Your sizing on the Flop is too low to put pressure on him so I would increase the sizing there as well :)

      Best regards,
