Looks like they've stopped respecting your PF raises on your rush :/

Too many hands hit a piece of that flop. Nobody's folding Qx, KJ, AJ or anything better; I like just checking here and take your free card.

Uh, have to check there. No need to try and get creative and raise, still one to act behind you, check and take the free card. None of the major draws or top pairs, top kicks that have you beat are going to fold to your bet here (unless it's a suicidal huge amount, which is pointless to do into this pot).

Check, and play it from there.

Are "feeler bets" totally uncool these days?

Uh yea, totally uncool.

No, seriously, there's nothing wrong with feeler bets, if the situation that is presented is ideal for a feeler bet; however, I don't think this situation--with 2 player checked in front, and 1 player left to act behind--is ideal for a feeler bet.

The purpose of the feeler bet is to see where you stand, and try to gauge the strenght of your opponents' hands. However, it only works when it is used in the right situation. In this situation, even when using the feeler bet, you won't really know where you stand if you get one or two callers, because of the board that came out on the flop.
