      Hey cpwpoker,

      Your stack is too big to shove directly preflop and besides you have position which you would give up if you shoved all-in. Preflop is well played.

      On the flop, I check behind and give up unimproved.

      If you do decide to c-bet then you should make a smaller c-bet like 1.10-1.20$ because it's a 3-bet pot and you get more respect for your c-bet and there are less drawing hands in his range. And after your c-bet gets raised you have an easy fold.

      Best regards,
