      Hello musabasjoo,

      What kind of opponent are we against? When we really don't know either he is capable of folding his TP here or not then I'd rather not pick such a line. Since he will very often just 3bet us and we would be in ugly situation. Therefore sometimes I might even prefer to just Call it and reevaluate further streets.

      The plan of the Check/Raise is usually that we either trying to make him fold and likely know that he is capable of folding his and or either we also plan to go broke. But for the given reason that our hand still might have showdown value and we might hit hard, I'd rather just call and and play further streets.

      Best regards.
