      I would usually bet/fold at least two streets.

      He might have AQ/JJ/QJs, but he might also have 88-TT that is stubborn, or even AJ/KJ.

      The risk is that he will make a bluff on the river with a weaker hand when he doesn't realize it doesn't make sense, and you have to fold your stronger hand. Still, I would usually check/fold the river unless I know the fish.

      Hello Raknyo,

      Could easily Bet the flop as well than Check/Fold it or Check/Call. Cause with Check/Call it's difficult to find out where we stand.

      Best Regards.
