      Hello Holidej,

      Well, I am actually not a huge fan of Check/Raising in this spot. The problem is that the guy is doing the CBet into opponents. I really doubt that he is doing that with pure air, could easily even have a made hand there.

      But as played definitely bet the turn, no way I am going to let him Check behind if he has a draw. That was your Check/Raise idea on flop, wasn't it?

      Best regards.
