      I think that I would always like to play my set like that in position^^. I think that check/call is a little too weak, bet/fold not an option, so my only option would be bet/call:)

      hmmm.. Maybe I would choose check/call turn & river, no need to protect your hand really. Depends a bit from stats & reads from villain. Against normal TAG I check/call turn and if he checks behind, then bet again on river.

      Actually I wasn´t protecting- rather than value betting. I see too much calling down Ax hands on Nl 10. Imo I´m 80% ahead here and I want to play for stacks:P

      c/c Turn. The board is absolutely dry. If he has an A, he's drawing to 3 Outs, so no need to protect. Further the check shows weakness and it's more likely that he will call a river bet from you.

      You´re playing a lot smarter opponents than I. I think I loose value if I check/call turn. I will call that hand down anyway (even if he pushes turn). So if there is very good chance that I´m often ahead and opponent would call my bet, why should I check and give him free card?
