      well, for me it`s close to push flop here, but I guess your play is also ok
      But again, try to think before... If you feel that cbet will commit you - push
      and don`t forget to to the same with made hands from time to time, to cover spots like this one

      Of course you have to call here. But as xylere is saying, think about the situation. Your opponent is pot committed anyway if you cbet and you have to call if he is pushing after your bet. So decide if you put him all-in anyway to maximize your fold equity or check/fold. Here I would push.
