      Hello theguy,

      What worse do you expect to get called from you you are going to Check/Raise the flop? I would just CBet like $0,20 and fold to the shove. We wont make him fold any pairs there anyways, therefore CBet = Check/Raise, by that I mean has the same fold equity.

      Best regards.
