      Hello alexgrapid,

      On such a board I guess we will face very often a strong combodraw and I guess at the best we might get a flip. And while we are rather in multiway pot I don't really expect the opponent to Check/Raise there that often with just draws, rather some strong made hands or at least very strong draw like Q:cJ against which we don't get that great equity. Plus his sizing as well kinda indicates to a strong hand, I would be more often for a Bet/Fold line here. But if you want to continue then definitely it's better to just Bet/Shove.

      Best regards.
