      Fold to flop CB is 0% (Raise 1/3, Call 2/3. 3 hands), Agg% 61%

      He is aggro & highly defence, so I decide check-raise for get his bet/fold with good draw.
      He bet, I raise... and get min raise. ?(

      I have Good odds, and think he will fold rarely, I did call it.

      You do have good odds but you have little playability. I think your line here should be a shove. I would not check/raise a super strong draw here unless I planned to shove vs a 3bet or to call off stacks. Yes, we aren't super ahead but we collect dead money with our previous aggression. When you know his range better you can readjust your ranges but until then, play your high equity hands strong, whether you decide to cbet or check/raise (which I think is fine btw).
