      Hi D,

      It depends a lot on what you think he does on that Ace. It's usually a card you barrel as a bluff because it gains you folding equity. If so, checking is better, he folds too often for you to get value. On the other hand, if he thinks you bluff it often, he will not fold and then you get value with your KJ. Both plays are fine without knowing exactly your opponent's level of thinking.
