      I don't see any sense in Cbeting here, but I'm not sure is check/folding ok in 3bet pot if I'm PF aggressor?

      This is an ugly spot out of position, we're never gonna get called by worse hands with a c-bet, but if we don't bet we might get pushed off our hand by worse hands later on.

      He likely has 99+/AQ+ in that spot. Depending on your opponent he will or will not automatically bet 99-JJ when you check the flop, i think that most often he won't, which means check/calling would only valuetown us unless we know he'll stab at it with worse hands. Check/folding is possible although slightly weak. We usually just c-bet/fold without more information on his postflop play, to show that we follow up on our 3bets especially if we intent to 3bet often, and to take the pot down right there if he has 99-JJ instead of putting ourselves in a tough spot when we check and he bets.

      I don't think you can really go wrong in that spot unless you check/call more than one street.

      Hope it helps.
