      Similar situation like last hand I've posted.
      I cbet flop, folded to re-raise.
      I'm having problems playing this kind of hands.

      Fishy players like to raise paired boards.

      If he is aggressive and we are afraid of a raise we should ck/fold the hand on the flop. Alternatively we can ck/call and let him bluff but the hand can get ugly fast (because we are OOP and pot can grow big).
