      The problem is the turn – as much as our hand is strong it is rather hard to imagine our opponent having a weaker hand that he is willing to go broke with. His preflop calling range mostly contains weak-medium pairs, some broadways and maybe medium-strong aces. His checkraise is either a bluff (maybe semi-bluff) or a set in my opinion. So how do we proceed? We are not folding obviously.
