      Hello Filipstan,

      Just the question is what do you want to accomplish with Check/Raise on flop? He is going to fold hands like KK, QQ and etc, at the best we get Called by some weaker Ace and okey if he is big station then maybe also from Jx. But otherwise only only K kicker don't beat us but also 2pairs like AJ and also FHs beat us. :) And of course against his stack as we decided to Call preflop then we can't really fold it here, therefore I'd also go broke (you could just ship it on river).

      Best regards.
