      Hello lukezo,

      Basically I wouldn't even CBet that much on such a flop ~$0,80 if I am CBetting at all. Depends a lot on the opponent, some tend to just Call the 3bets with PPs only and against them we can easily even Check/Fold, those are often times some tighter/nitter opponents. But basically if I am cbetting then mainly CBet/Fold, we can't really beat much anymore when he shoves and don't get correct odds.

      Best regards.

      Yes, but do you think a smaller doesn't look weaker in a 3B pot?

      I mean that we might more often be facing a bluff..but a call is allright here, I'm committed anyways?

      Do you reccomend a check in such spot rather than cbeting?

      Nah, it doesn't. Usually in 3bets and such boards I even do usually smaller CBets. Even if I do hold there the nuts.

      I mean that we might more often be facing a bluff..but a call is allright here, I'm committed anyways?

      Nah, I don't think that he is bluffing that often in 3bet pots, rather has a made hand and nope we aren't committed.

      Do you reccomend a check in such spot rather than cbeting?

      Nah, CBetting is totally fine although it depends a lot on the opponents.
