      Hi SalamiandCheese,

      I don't like check/raising the flop, it gives away the strength of your hand and even a Q may end up folding.

      On dry boards against only one opponent, I like check/calling the flop and donkbetting the turn. This way you can extract something from him if he's holding nothing, but don't scare away a Q either. Also, if he has nothing, he may catch something on the turn to go along with you.

      But on drawy boards, specially against multiple opponents, I'm leading out on the flop, I don't like to take my chances giving a free card and I want to build the pot, against multiple opponent, it's quite possible someone has something to go along with you.
