      Hello Gonchan,

      The problem with Checking on flop is that there are still some overcards which we don't want to see like Q/K so therefore I'd just bet myself on flop. :) As played you can still bet it on river for value.

      Best regards.

      Although I fear 5, bet/fold is right on flop? and if called, what amount bet will be
      good on turn?

      Yeah, you can still Bet/Fold it. :) Don't be scared to bet it there and even if you get min-raised you can still reevaluate the further actions.

      And depends what kind of pot size we have on turn but more like not 1/2 pot size a bit bigger. :)
