      Hey JHTAN,

      If you want to c-bet this you should make a bigger c-bet and shove turn.

      However, check/fold has much less variance and possibly even higher longterm EV, so c/f would be the best.

      Best regards,

      Hey,

      Actually, the pot on Flop is $6.65(rake) and not $7 as shown above.
      do you mean you just c/f on the Flop?
      I cbet Flop because I think I can fold out SC,KQ,KJ.
      you don't want to cbet Flop because you think that most of his range is PPs?

      thanks.

      Despite smaller pot I would c-bet more, just enough to shove turn IF I would decide to c-bet.

      And yes, I just c/f flop. The problem is not that I would think his range is mostly PPs, but simply the fact he will not give you credit on this board and call you with a wide range thus making your flop c-bet -EV. You say you would make him fold SCs, but if you look better you will see almost all SCs caught a piece of this flop. Besides, he might even refuse to fold overcards and float with them instead.
