      veriz why check on this board? In my oppion the best play would be cbetting as our hand is so faceup after checking that flop and we can be owned so easily by our opponent. If you check here with KK-JJ what hands besides AA do you balance that with? in nl 5 our opponent is not gonna call the flop with hands like 99-JJ and then stab on the turn to our check they will nicely checkback hands that we beat. so if we get action after our cbet we can fold easily...

      Cause not many worse hands pay you? :) Why would it be faced up? I could also Check here with Ax to induce.

      Yeah, of course. We may also Check/Call it with many Ax holdings here, especially if we have weak holding.

      Ok, now I get flop play with QQ here, thanks a lot!

      What about turn and/or river?

      1) Does it make sense to bet turn or river? Or really we switch into passive mode even after flop, because hard to bet for value, and depending on the villain we could call it down.
