      Should I ever be calling Flop?

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Once we check I would ck/fold versus someone that appears fishy (stack size).

      We could make an argument for bet/folding 1/2 pot to just take the pot down and maybe get called by Jx/QQ and then try to check it down. So that would be my preferred option versus unknown.
