      Villain is 28/22/WTS50/AF inf /18 hands , ok I know that my call pre was bad , It would have been better to 3 bet or fold there but anyway, I have a big leak with TPTK after I raise I cannot fold ,but I am 80% sure that I am beat.So how can I play this flop ?? Bet/fold or c/c and reevaluate ???

      Hello alexgrapid,

      Preflop: Nah, calling ain't like a very big mistake here. Against specific opponents I do like Calling as well better than 3betting just for fold equity.
      Postflop: I would rather Check/Call it rather then Check/Raise since we just isolating against better hands with our Check/Raise. Or either even Bet/Fold would be better.

      Usually you must have a good reason to Check/Raise the flop, like you wanted to balance something or wanted to play back against him or whatsoever, there can be a lot of different reasons but against unknown I wouldn't pick such a line.

      Best regards.
