      Ok, but why? I don't have a lot of fold equity (I represent nothing) and I open myself to a check/raise like it happened in the hand.

      You get a lot of fold equity against pps below 9s which are a big part of BB's range. You could be repping a flush draw, overpairs overcards. some straight draws. I think you can still cbet this flop. you have the oesd and although your outs aren't clean you still have the redraw for the flush with your J. Good fold

      +1

      Usually players would not c/rai all-in, so you should c-bet to fold out better hands, small pp-s or Ax hands+ you likely can barrel any turn card and still expect to have fold equity. Also for example AT you´re flipping:
      board: Th9d2c
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      QhJd 49.57% 5,889 0
      AT 50.43% 5,991 0

      and against small pp you´re even ahead:
      board: Th9d2c
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      QhJd 52.73% 3,132 0
      33 47.27% 2,808 0

      best regards,
