      Hello yinyun,

      I don't like that much the Check on turn. I would just make it easy and simple and Bet myself to protect from any kind of FD or even higher SDs.

      As played why do you Check/Min-Raise? If you even want to Check/Raise then you should do it properly and not giving him proper odds for any draws. But as he ships, well that's exactly the spot which we would rather prefer to avoid. I mean he is never shipping here with worse than ours. We could easily be at the best just freerolling. We are most likely at least against Ax, I'd even consider folding vs such a line.

      Best regards.
