      why not cbet here ?
      you are showing very strong pre flop and you check the flop while you hit it!

      check/call is the worse line i think cause you have no clue what to do later in the hand checking the flop looks to weak cause there are 0 hands you are slowplaying in this flop and he can easily push you out of the hand.

      so my plan whould be bet/fold if you think you are beat then check/fold

      I think you do have an easy cbet here. It'ss a bit conradictory because villain will fold everything you beat and give action with better, but if you check you kinda give up. You can c/c onliy 1 time, just like w4terman sais.
      I'm wondering what range the mp guy would have here. Do you have some fold to 3bet stats on him? Right now i think you are only beat by AK and tt in this spot.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Nah, I like the play. Villain calling range is anyways going to be mainly stronger PPs/AK/AQ type of hands which hardly have you beat on the river. Whatever is worse most likely Checks the turn. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
