      Hey,

      yes, we definitely need to cbet here. MP just limp/calls preflop, so there are many suited connectors, weaker pocket pairs in his range. Also board is very draw heavy, so I would bet 2/3 for value and protection from flushdraws and straight draws. Same on turn. I doubt MP has Jx often, so no need to worry :)

      I agree with John here Nemorut, if you re-read the Strategy articles again of the MSS strategy, we see that postflop we have to bet as it congruents with our raising preflop

      You are very welcome to attend my Sunday's MSS coaching starting at 19:00 CET to see how I play the MSS

      Best regards,
      Gerv
