      Without reads, bet flop. I think you loose value the times he checks back and he could call you with quite alot on the flop (ex TJ, KJ, the aces he calls with preflop, perhaps a queen, maybe even float you (if you think he will float you, why not bet flop check-raise turn?)).

      Preflop; good raise.

      There are many hands that call us in this flop. You are OOP, but you have initiative, BET !

      Turn; as bad as this play might look, I would donk bet here for protection.
      What if he checks behind ? free card.

      If blank comes on river, you donk and he probably folds.

      * Always value bet these hands, UNLESS you got some uber mega read on villain.
      Yes - There will be lot of times where your opps just fold to fold cbet but there would be a lot of times where you'll get paid by worse.
