      - you can c/r flop and play for stacks

      But c/c flop; c/r turn and valuebetting river is also fine

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Yeah. :) I don't like the Check/Call that much. If he has any kind of hand then he will anyways call us. Rather bet yourself on flop and protect it. If he doesn't have a hand or a weak hand then he will just bet the flop and maybe even Check behind on turn with a draw or whatsoever which we don't want. It's just a freeplay pot, we want to build up the pot.

      Best regards.
