      The question is right, I was thinking a lot on these spots as well...
      I think the cbet here is some sort of semibluff with the added equity of our bottom pair. But our hand is too weak and vulnerable to check it back, and call turn/river to get to showdown. If we dont cbet, it equals giving up the hand, cause there aint many safe turn/rivercard for us where we could call down.
      If we had A8 or TT in this spot, I'd be more inclined to checkbehind flop, and try to bluffcatch.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Our hand is still pretty vulnerable and nor we don't want to turn it into bluff-catcher so I'd say no way to Check behind here without even knowing much about the guy tendency.

      Best Regards.
