      Why not bet on the flop and represent a pocket pair?

      Hmm if you c-bet, you have to go all-in. If your opponent has a pocket pair he very likely will call. If he has Overcards and A-high he might call. If he has trash he will fold. Against A-high you have to improve.

      With your preflop position it could be hard to represent a Pocket Pair, since your raising range includes a lot of non-pair hands as well.

      So I think its ok to play check/fold unimproved here.
