      Hello juhiimi,

      Why do you think we are committed here? You can still CBet it ~$1,40 while it's a 4bet pot and should be enough. The problem that just going for Check/Fold might be too weak, what do you think how would he play TT-QQ here? Would you Check/Fold against any bet?

      Best regards.

      I think if i bet,he throws away hands like TT-QQ,but with check he can bet here so i would call the flop if the bet is something like you said that i should cbet here.And if i play like this i dont think that he will barrel the turn without an A.What do you think?

      If you Call the flop then you will be pretty much committed on turn. ;)

      I'd rather ship it just preflop and make it easy, sometimes even shoving like that might make look your hand even weak. :)

      If he bets like $2 you are calling and you practically commit yourself and if you put that much into the pot and also put the opponent on something like that then you should Call the turn as well.

      But when you CBet yourself you practically just making fold those hands and don't have to do hero-calls. Also have almost 50% of your stack left. :) He wont float with those hands either.
