      I think c-bet that spot is better than checking back. You don´t really induce too many bluffs if you check back and most of the times you just give him free card to catch up (hit his set for example 88)- also you should be still quite often ahead, since AK, AA, KK would very often go all-in pf.

      And once you get called you can check your hand down against AQ

      best regards,

      But which worse hands are calling? Not too much I guess?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      If we CB the flop then it means we doing it for value, we are planning to go broke and not that we are planning to Check it behind on the turn. Wouldn't make sense to bet in first place. Then rather just Check behind the flop. :)

      But vs such a fishy ain't a mistake to Bet the flop I'd say while the guy definitely has even worse hands in his range. Vs unknown/reg we want to Check it behind to avoid value-towning ourselves cause his calling range hardly hits here and not many worse hands pay us.

      Best Regards.
