      Hi.

      It's a good spot to just check the Flop and call down. It's really nasty to be faced with a raise here on such boards. Our various options here are all not very pleasant after we bet.

      I would prefer betting though, if villain is not too aggro, and he is very loose preflop (plays many AX hands preflop such as A2s or A9o A8o etc). Then we have a clear bet and if we get raised, we are crushed by his strong raising range so we can easily fold.

      Thanks.
