      Check the flop for pot control. Maybe i should cbet?!

      I think flop check can be fine against most people but given that he looks close to a calling station I prefer cbetting for value but not by much since checking doesn't miss value that much.

      As played, I think it's a call... He can still have AJ, AT, Ax of spades in his range that are worse. Apart from that, there are some bluffs that make sense.. A couple of combos of T9s, some block bet with QJ type hand, etc.
