      MP 265 hands, 22/18, 4bet 0, fold to 3bet 67
      CO 12 hands, 50/25

      What to do on this board? If I bet and they fold it is fine I dont get value. If I bet and somebody calls or raises what then on turn? If I check and the guy IP bets, I might hope he bluffs on scare board but I risk of getting stacked. The bet size of CO was so weird, it looked to me so much as bluff because there is no nead to scare passive opponents with nuts.

      CO might be a bit fishy so then his big sizing is not as unusual. I would usually fold vs that. It's just way too big, you expect just too many turn shoves, you just don't have a +EV call imo.

      I would check the board to call smaller sizing or in some cases vs floaters you can still cbet for value. If you cbet they fold air and don't have bluffs to raise with. They will usually just flat very strong hands and bluffs as well, plus their medium hands. When you bet you like their medium hands calling and checking down which they very very often do and their air hands to either call or fold which again they often do.
