      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      Villain: 14/11/2,5/WTSD 22/hands 77

      FLOP:Normally, i cbet on such flops especially in position. But this time i wasnt sure. If i bet, no worse hand will call me, but at least if he raises i would get some information and could probably throw my hand away. I dont think he has a flush draw very often and therefore there is no need for protection.My reasoning was that if i check i could get some value on turn from AK or possibly AQ.
      Question: Is check here ok, or would you rather bet on flop? If yes for what reasons?

      bet flop, at least $4

      turn will be much bigger pot and you still bet it with a blank like that

      and river can be checked ok

      I think it comes to that if you think
      - villain can c/r flop with worse hands at that case you should bet/shove flop
      - villain would only c/r with better hands, which case pot control is fine, although since villain would also take c/c line or c/f line with worse hands, I´d c-bet that board and likely also bet turn to get my free showdown
