      Hello dooleslovs,

      Wouldn't say it's a mistake, since you still have got some backdoors and also position and of course fold equity. But the CB mainly also depends on the opponent, that kind of board is more towards them to continue here. So Checking behind could be another option but then again we wouldn't be able to Call with draws on the turn. So which is better? Bet yourself or Check behind?

      But as played we are of course Betting also the turn for protection and free showdown most likely.

      Best Regards.
