      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Well, you can Check/Raise there but you can't represent much and especially not with such a raise size, makes your hand look quite obvious and rather weak.

      Best Regards.

      So far I have observed that most players on NL4 don't pay much attention to the bet sizes, they only pay attention to the fact that I have check/raised, which allows you to use unbalanced bet sizes. Because of that I thought I had as much fold equity as raising, for example, to $0.70. Would check/folding or check/raising be better on this flop?

      Well, but I mean even if he has there JJ/TT I doubt that he is folding to your sizing here. :)
