      I was going to play c/f on the flop, as MP2 has a lot of aces in his range. On the other hand there a lot of lower pockets in his range too. So would a cbet have been better here?

      As played his tiny bet ($1 in a $4,34 pot) made me changed my mind and I pushed all in. Is there any reasonable explanation for such a small bet from MP2?

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Why not to CBet the flop? Often times on such board I am at least CBetting while being the PFA, since sometimes just Check/Folding might be too weak while he could easily have worse PPs. And somehow I don't like the Check/Raise since there ain't worse hands which Call you anyways there, they will likely fold and those who win you will Call.

      Best regards.
