      1) Opponent is a fish - He misplays big time when you check and underrepresent his hand. He will assume you have air and try to move you off your hand. And against his imbalanced frequencies, it's easy to call down multiple streets
      2) WA/WB situation, except when you are against a flush draw.

      You have QX or worse crushed, AX has you crushed, fishes love raising paired flops some of the time (though he would be less likely on AAX board when you are the 3better and are perceived to have many AX yourself).

      Therefore, c/c is by far the best play.
