      58/4/0.5 after 25 hands

      I cbet flop because I think hi might have anything there and I maybe ahead.
      Now after he reraises I need to be ahead ~24%of the time. On the one hand - he thinks he is commited so with the same hand that he calls, he just goes allin.

      On the other hand raise means a pair at least. So what to do there? Maybe just don't cbet flop and give up if he bets?

      Against such an opponent I wouldn't mind Check/Folding but next time you Bet/Fold then you can likely do it a bit less against such stack. For example, $0.40 would do the same. And you had easier to fold because you would need near 30% equity to make the call profitable.

      For example against him in this situation as you said you need 24% equity and you very closely get it, so it wouldn't be that big mistake to Call his shove there either but definitely folding is also fine.

      Best regards.
