Just a general strategy question. Too many variables I imagine for a pat answer, but how regularly do you bet the flop on hands like this?

Considering the relatively healthy stack, is this a hand you might take a stab on the flop, check/folding the turn? Check/fold period. Push on occasion?

Again, keep in mind the chip counts. I have no problem pushing any piece in a >5-1 chip differential.
