      The flop hits his range hard. Usually his calling range would be Broadway. However there is also some pocket pairs and Axs that he could fold but not so often. Him on the button suggests his range is wider than usual.

      If we had absolutely nothing I'm inclined to check fold this flop especially when he calls on flop so much and has a stronger range when he calls. However since we have bottom pair and 5 outs to trips or 2p I think this is the worst hand I could make a CB with. And if you hit the 3 or A you could get his entire stack.

      Conclusion is that this hand is the worst hand that qualifies for a CB and I think check folding is a fine option too.
