      Hey D,

      My plan here would be to either check it down or c/r and turn it into a bluff if he bets. After a check back I expect his range to be significantly capped and made of air or medium strength hands. We beat some air and medium strength air so if we check and go to shodown we win a reasonable percentage of the time.

      If he bets though, we cannot just pay off his medium strength hands, although we do get enough equity given some hands we beat, but even those have overs most often. That makes me consider using this hand as a 5 outter bluff.

      In general, when BU opens wide and checks back flop, you can get veeery creative. You can lead 2x pot, you can check/raise big, you can check/call, you can also lead a normal amount as well ofc. Many options because of your opponent capping his range too often with his check.

      Hmmm.. Check to begin with, we have the best hand often and we cannot really bluff him, he'd not pot control to fold so he only make him fold air. He doesn't have Tx, probably not KQ type hands as often, esp vs 2 checks from Hero so AK more likely Kx, maybe K7 plays like this so I would check/call. If he checks down overs, I just lead turn more often to capitalise on the dead money and make him fold his equity since he cannot check back overs with low showdown value to bluffcatch low turns imo.
