      I call IP with AQ and decide to check back the flop because his check polarises his range. I decide to flat the turn to get another bet from Jx on the river or induce a bluff. Is this an okay line to take?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Since the board is somehow drawy, I guess I am just betting right on flop. Otherwise I guess you could as well try to raise it on turn to get at least some value from him if he has some kind of draw.

      Best regards.
