      Better to c/f turn, since I think he rather has there strong hand if he bets that much and you can´t call him down if you don´t hit your 2 outer

      Hello sausage646,

      That's why I don't like that much on flop to go for Check/Call. The problem is that you will never know if you turned your hand into bluff-catcher or not. Or you already far-far behind. Therefore I'd rather just bet myself vs unknown opponent on flop than go for Check/Call on flop & turn where we can very likely even be behind.

      Best regards.
