      The MSS charts say I should c-bet the flop, but here I'm OOP and Villain has shown some kind of strength by calling my reraise (it's likely that he had an A). So, would it have been wrong to check/call or even check/fold here?

      I think I also made the mistake of betting too small, basically giving him odds to shove the flop. What do you think?

      Thank you!

      Hey,

      He doesn't really show that much strength by calling. Nevertheless I would still cBet the Flop because you block AQ, AK is ruled out so the only Ax he can have is AJ. One can also check/call but then you allow him to play perfect versus you because he is in control

      Best regards,
      Gerv
