      Hi Noel,

      That's a very good question that you have here.
      I'll try to make you find out the answer by yourself:

      Can you try to assess Villain's range when he C/R that turn?

      Once you have his range use the equilab to check your equity against this range and compare this with the pot odds.

      I'll check your answers later on.
      Then we can discuss your CBet on flop and turn.

      Hello noel50,

      After you get Called on flop it's a spot where you should consider even Checking behind. The problem will be that you wont get him off anyways from better hands. Most of the weaker pairs you have beat anyways and he wouldn't bet them on river.

      But as played you should rather fold to the Check/Raise since your implied odds ain't gonna be very good in this spot. Might even be reversed implied odds.

      Best regards.
