I wanted to primarily discuss the flop check back and see what your thoughts are on this. Are you ever checking this spot given the board and IP? What are your reasons?

Re: 5/10 Line Check

I like the flop check... so it's probably the wrong play.

Re: 5/10 Line Check

Pre good
Flop is a mandatory bet - pretty silly to check here just kinda random and button clicky

5/10 Line Check

I don't hate the flop check since we can't really go for three streets on this texture but if you decide to check flop you have to call down

Also, you should provide any reads on villain

Edit: on second thought we can go three streets if we underbet flop/depends what his 3b defend range is

Re: 5/10 Line Check

Reads are important in poker

Bet the flop - it's a good flop for us and we can bet for value.

We can always check back river after getting 2 streets

This. I would bet anywhere from 33%-50% of the pot OTF, depending on V. If I had zero reads, then I would just bet $100.

As played, you have to call down. Your hand is totally under-repped.

Agree with betting flop 100% (with our entire range but especially with this hand). I'd bet 25% pot.

You can split your hands on the turn.

I'd fold river. I'm finding it hard to find enough reasonable bluffs or worse value bets. Obviously some reads on the villain would help a lot here...
