      without knowing your opponents tendencies very well I would never check/call this spot.

      I would either check raise or DB depending on the situation and opponents.

      In this particular situation I prefer to check/raise and fold to a 3b or make a new decision on the turn, this is for the following reasons:

      :heart: We are check raising for value primarily vs 5x, 66, 44 Ax with a gutshot and any over cards that might have 6 outs to beat us
      :spade: villains open raising range on the BU should be very wide and will include a mutlitude of overcards that he will place a c-bet on the flop with. He will do this either as a bluff or for value. Therefore we win money from our opponents postflop bluffs and profit from our fold equity.
      :diamond: Villain can only really continue with 5x,66+,44, 4x, AX (unless he is somekind of maniac) and if we get 3b we know he is never doing it as a bluff and we can make an easy fold.

      I would only DB/fold if we:

      :spade: Are in a MWP
      :heart: think villain(s) will check back the flop often and we lose value / give a free card

      Folding is too weak here. I would 3bet the opponent as we are often ahead here. If he 4 bets we can consider ourselves behind and make a fold. We don't want to see the turn because it often brings an over card and then we are uncertain of where we sit.

      Hi,

      I think both leading or c/c should be fine. If you c/r then it is hard him to continue with worst hands and if he calls you really have no idea if you should bet turn or not.
      If player is straight forward you can always c/f turn and not expect him to bluff that spot

      best regards,
