      Simeler to a previous hand I thought that I'm only geting raised by a flush or a flush draw. So I elected to check behind and hope for the board to pair for me to raise.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Yeah, I like your line and your thoughts are also reasonable. We likely most of the time are only getting Called by better hand, also we don't want to face a Check/Raise. Rather just take a free card and if we hit our FH, then we still can extract value from him. :) Nice hand!

      Best regards.
