When to check with AK on the Flop

If there are several opponents and the Flop completely misses your AK, do not think you are obligated to bet if it is checked to you. Too many players think since they raised pre-Flop with this hand that they are forced to bet it on the Flop even if it misses them and there are numerous players. This is incorrect. It is ok to check with AK on the Flop when the situation calls for it.

Example:

You are on the Button in an 8 handed game and two players have limped in front of you. You raise with A*K^, a legitimate raising hand even with the two limpers in front of you. Both blinds call as do the two limpers. Five players see the Flop.
