      This is one of those realy anoying spots where you just want yur opponet to belive u have AK 1 time.

      I think C/F the flop is better, then B/F the turn if he checks behind and if he calls hope that he checks behind on the river and the 2s hold.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Against such opponents you usually have to fire 2 barrels, since they are loose enough with their Calling range that they often float the flop but in this situation, he likely had a hand. Therefore I wouldn't be really worried about our gameplay, but the idea of Checking flop and betting turn doesn't make sense at all, it just makes our hand weaker, since we didn't Bet the flop.

      Best regards.
