      Hi GX2

      You have over 100bb so it is BSS, Did you just quadruple up :D ?

      If you are going to cbet cbet bigger otherwise don't. You are under 1/2 pot so you are just asking for a 3 bet. the board is dry so you can cbet $1.

      Don't worry if you are scared to play with a large stack, especially if it represent a high proportion of your roll. The best way is not to enter the pot. Fold to the blinds and then leave the table.

      Hey gxtwo,

      If you feel concerned about playing with full stack then it's advisable to just wait for monsters(KK+) while you wait for the blinds and then leave. Those are usually easy enough to play.

      About the hand, you could raise a bit less preflop, but 4x raise is also fine. On the flop, I would just go with the half potsize c-bet and give up against any action.

      As played, nice laydown.

      if you are really worried about playing with a larger stack, i would think it would be fine to just stand up immediatly with 50+bb, especially with over 100bb.

      sure, we miss a few monsters, and we miss some FPP's, but i think those minimal gains are offset by losing a 5bi (100bb) pot
