      Hey urmo1,

      I would say it depends on how aggressive CO is. You want to avoid getting raised on the flop because it's debatable how great bet/folding is going to be vs such a short stack with good equity. Checking is a legitimate option. The danger of villain check/shoving is always higher when he is short.

      Betting is also fine, you can potentially extract value from worse on this board, fold out some of villains equity, and still have a reasonable semi-bluff vs any pairs in his range that decide to call.
