      No, don't slowplay, bad play on this drawy flop imo.
      You could instead bet first 1/2 potsize to induce bluff or reraise.
      If he don't have nothing he won't pay you off. Simple as that.

      Hello Filipstan,

      One option would be to donk yourself there and try to protect and avoid the Check behind but as well the guy was PFA then Check/Raising should be sometimes doable as well although it's close just for the reason that he wont pay us anyways when he doesn't have a hand. Check/Raise is likely a lot stronger move, he might even sometimes fold his PPs while against donks he still might consider Calling or sometimes even with overcards.

      Best regards.
