    I'd just check the flop and hope to see a free/cheap turn. I think our fold equity is relatively small and I'm not too keen on bloating the pot just yet.

    If you assume he has only sets/two pair, you're basically flipping. If he might semi-bluff draws like this, your equity drops to ~41%.

    As played, being Out of Position, I don't really fancy just calling and facing a brick turn when we might have to fold or hitting our flush and not getting paid. Therefore I'd just move all in with my monster draws, exercising some fold equity and we have very decent hand equity.

      He has AJ, I had to 3-bet shove just coz I bet the flop there so no point calling. I had to shove. I was 56-44 favorite luckily.

      So your line will be to check-call flop, then check-call turn and check-fold river if I don't make straight or flush? Like playing passive all the way

        I 100% agree with Andy. It's way too many BB to be blindly taking a flip at best.

        I'd check/call the flop, then if I miss the turn, only call a bet if I'm priced in to do so and fold if I'm not priced in on the turn or if I miss the river because I have plenty of playability in my stack to find a better spot.
