    I think you should bet the flop here, to flop its to dry and you don't wanna give free card to your opponents. I don't think you will get chek raise so very often here, most of the times you will get check called, 1 street and earn some profit from it. It's very unlikely someone to have set or 2 pair here unless this guys are to fishy.

    I honestly don't hate a check back here versus more tricky aggressive players, just because our hand is very strong, but we cannot be happy if we get check/raised, even though we probably have enoug equity to stack off versus mostly combo draws. If we were against 1 opponent it's a necessary bet, but versus 2 it is more likely for somenone to wake up with a pair+FD here or a hand like 3456dd and go for the c/r, versus which we are not doing that great. It is true that noone should have 44xx, or 22xx that often here, so if we get c/raised we have to get it in vs mostly combo draws, with around 35-45% equity. What checking flop does for us is, it can improve our equity a lot on many nice turns, where we would be happier to get it in. We have some nice Backdoor equity and there are a lot of nice turns for us, like any heart or a non diamond Q,J,K,A,T, 7, 8, 9. All of these will make our equity much bigger on the turn vs any hand with a FD on the flop, so checking back is OK.

    caiko's advice is also very good, especially vs 1 opponent, but also in this situation vs 2ppl if you know your opponents to be passive and to c/c more than c/r with draws. In that case you want to charge them and not give them a free card.

    So, take my advise versus aggressive tricky regulars, and take caiko's advise versus the passive fish.
