      I think these days when you take such c/c lines you should be prepared to call at least 2 streets, if not 3. And definitely check some AX hands here as well.

      If this guy is good, he should recognize that he needs to bet 3 streets or just give up right away. I think you are going to be rarely bluffing in this spot. So if he is in a 3barrel or give up mode, then you need to c/c 3 times a lot of the time, unless you have a more balanced checking range comprising some AA, AT A9 AK some % of the time.

      Though all these points are more relevant at higher limits. Maybe at NL25 people just fire twice and give up (as indicated by the disparity between his F/T/R AF). So I think c/c twice and giving up should be the best line in this case vs this opponent.
