      Checking this behind is ok from time to time? I wouldn't know how to proceed if he raises and if I check he might pay me off with worse.

      I would never check back here any hand that I 3-bet, so I don't see reason why I should check behind with tptk.
      If you´re also checking here with medium pp-s, then your line is fine, but opponent expects you to c-bet on that board 100%.
      And you want to stack AQ or AT.
