      Howdy,

      I'd just bet out flop, because board is drawy and we don't want to get checked around here, because we miss a lot of protection and value against worse hands+draws. If we'd be sure someone will bet after us, check/raising is reasonable move, but those guys seems like way more on passive side, so just bet out yourself and make it pretty big, close to pot.

      As played with calling flop, it's uncomfortable spot on turn as they may fold some draws on paired board after you check/raise, but still - it's the last chance to get some value from drawing hands as we can't guarantee they will hit and we will stack them off on river.

      So overall - you missed a lot of value by not betting yourself.

      Good luck!
