      Hi there,
      I have just doubled up and got this Hand. I wanted to play checkraise here to generate more fold equity. What do you think about it ?

      Oh, and the two guys behind me have been bullying me all the time. They have been coldcalling and reraising my conti in almost any hand I played so far. And since I always missed the flop, I kept bet/folding.

      Hi wettongl,

      I really like your play here, you balance your check/fold line and also induce bluffs a free card wouldn't harm you. You generate much more Fold equity against middle pairs and maybe also against a weak J. You should definitely have the equity to make this move plus ev. Even against AJ you have 46% equity with the money already in the pot its plus ev. When the Flop gets checked around and you dont improve you should play check call according to odds and outs. So nice Hand well played.
