      IMO, most players don't have the guts to check/raise bluff, so usually a check/raise means strength.

      I think here you are either against top set, AA, or maybe Q9... maybe he has a small flush as well... you could be ahead if he's holding the A :diamond: or a Q, but I think it's unlikely. So there's a small chance you're ahead and a big chance you're drawing thin or dead.

      I'd fold to his check/raise.

      Didn't you use a too wide range for him here?

      J :diamond: , K :diamond: ... IMO, most players won't check/raise with these.

      A :diamond: K :diamond: , I don't think most players are going to play the nuts this agressively. At least not in NL10.

      And I think small flushes are possible, villain could have raised preflop with JTs,J8s,T8s... I don't think hero's got such good chances here to win this pot.

      I'd wait for a better spot.

      I'd fold to a c/r. His line looks too scary. I don't see him bluffing this often in a RR pot. He may have slowplayed Aces, a set or a hand like A:dQ - the key point is that people tend to play very passively at this limit, so if the c/r, they typically got a monster.
