      I'd also check this R since he'll never call you with a worse hand. How about leading the flop instead of ch/calling? This is not a flop where teh PFA will be cbetting a lot, but we can get calls from 66, 77, 99, TT, any 8, not mention the gazillion draws out there against which we also want to protect. In case we lead, I think we can often fold to a re-raise, becase we'll probably be looking at a set or very strong draw, maybe eve QQ+ with a :heart:

      I think your hand has too much value to turn that into bluff catcher
      I´d bet flop and then also go to showdown after flushcard hits
