      On flop i think i have positive equity to go all in but maybe i could play it differently and use out my position more? For example check behind and take a free card since i expect to get c/r'ed on such boards alot.

      Against a unknown 40bb stack this is perfectly fine, you're never is a bad enough shape against his range for you to make a mistake be getting it in there. I wouldn't try and play this passively without some very specific reads on that player, which you don't have.

      When you say you are afraid to get c/r'ed on such boards a lot, try and define exactly what hands would c/r you. The more semibluffs/air/hands_you're_a_favorite_against he does that with, the better the bet/3bet line is for you.

      Even if you believe he will only raise/call you with sets and straights, you are probably still better off bet/3betting to make him fold all the rest, as you have decent equity against this very strong, yet small, part of his range.

      Hope it helps.
