    I won't say my thoughts just yet but I have a couple of questions.

    What was the purpose behind betting on the flop?

    Is villain really playing 0/0 after 52 hands or was he just sat out?

    Do you think you've covered all of villains value options in your equilab screengrab?

      Yes he was sitting out all the time that's why it's 0/0. I bet the flop as I thought I have the best hand and even if he calls I will be able to take it down on a turn bet, worst case if he has a hand like KK QQ. I can make my flush or Ace and he will get punished for playing fancy poker.

      I think that's all the real hands he can check-raise me there, rest if you want to include air then you can include some more junk hands which has less then 20% equity like KJo JTo.

      Plus if I check the flop and he has KQ KT TJ, it's not point giving him free cards and let him make his pair.

        OK well when I looked at your graphic I just read 99 and not 99+ So I agree with the range you assigned.

        When he checks this flop, I don't think he's going to be check/folding too often, that's mainly something I've seen in my experience.

        So I think you can bet and still get value from worse, but when we bet here it looks just so bluffy so we're opening ourselves to be check/raised a bunch, which isn't something I particularly want to face. So I'd just take the free card and then decide what to do on later streets.

        As played I doubt we really have much fold equity if we shove and the stuff he does fold, we're likely beating anyway. So I'd just call and decide what to do later on in the hand utilising our position.
