Nope, pretty standard.

I usually am betting the flop though.

Oh, and don't show the results please.

I guess I got greedy. So in that situation normally, should I open up betting?

The thing with flopping two pair with big broadway cards is that it cordoniates the board and gives other callers straight drawsm especially if they like calling with big cards themselves. These type hands need to be played fast.

And you can't settle into an obvious pattern of checking when you hit, and betting when you miss - astute opponents will soon pick up on this.

If an Ace flops, as pre-flop aggressor you are likely to be put on an Ace anyway, so you might as well bet it and carry along someone with a weaker kicker. Your check raise is so obvious, you might as well be playing with your cards turned over. The outcome would have been the same though, your opponent would have picked those exact 3 cards if he had the choice, there was nothing you could have done about the result.
