      Judging by his stack size and 3bet call.

      The villain probably have something like A8s-AJ or a pocket pair like 88-TT. If the player is regular, he probably would re-raise better hands like AQ+.

      This is a tough decision, tough, if you check you're givin' away the pot. I always cbet to see where I am. If he calls, we might get a free card on turn, but if he re-raise your cbet I instant fold lol.

      If we don't improve, the river is c/f imo.

      Hey JHTAN,

      I would check this behind. He is never folding a better hand(except KK and even this isn't sure) and he is never calling a worse, so this all makes a c-bet useless in this case specially considering this is a clear way ahead/way behind spot.

      After the check behind you have to decide what to do on the turn based on his action, but you are pretty crushed by his range so I would lean towards c/f.

      Best regards,

      Hey burek,

      How do you balance your cb range and cbet range on this spot?
      I mean it is very readable that is cb=MP like JJ,QQ,KK and cbet=Ax.
      Although, balancing is not important in micro limit but I just curious about it.

      Thanks.

      I advice you not to be curious about it because you will be overthinking your hand which results in you burning money without a good reason at all.

      Practically if you want to get an answer on your question, you basically answered it yourself if you think abit actively about it:

      No you always check back because the money goes in on 2 streets anyway so it is either FLop+Turn, or FLop+River or Turn+River
