      With your check raise you make better hands call and worser fold so c/r is really not good on this spot.

      May be check/call, turn check/call if he 2nd barrels a lot or check/fold

      Sounds a lot better indeed. Just because your opponent c-bets often doesn't mean he's ever calling your raise with a worse hand, in which case it's meaningless to get more money in while blowing him off his bluffs. Check/raising TT for value there is very thin and requires the knowledge that you opponent is so suspicious that he's capable of calling you don with A-high or worse pocket pairs, which most people won't.


      Hope it helps.
