Check. A bet is likely enough to take it down, but getting check-raised would be bad against the only bigger stack here and the chances of hitting the nuts up against the big stack is inviting. Anyway, free card and you have a draw.

Good hand - looking forward to this discussion. What are your reads on the BB? I think this makes a big difference here.

Given his call (and especially given his stack size) I'd probably check here and hope a club hits on the turn. Pushing seems way too risky against this stack size since his call could easily mean an overpair which he'd call. A small to mid sized bet would be check raised all-in by a lot of players.

If a club hits you should be able to take a large amount of chips from him because he's likely putting in a big bet on the turn.

Cut his stack in half and I'd play differently but in this case I check and take the free card.

If Curtains pushed here, he's doctoring these hand histories and this is all a big mis-information campaign.

I would bet/3-bet. t400-600 sounds good, depending on how often I c-bet/don't c-bet, bet when there's a flush draw out, etc.

Edit: I like to get my money into the pot when I'm ahead, and it looks like we're way ahead here (assuming A &amp; T are clean outs.) Why you would not bet here is beyond me.
