      I still don't know what to do in these spots. I know that villain mostly has TT/JJ but do we have to cbet then? Just check? But then I'm afraid he could bluff me with something unpaired :( .

      I just chose to bet in the end but I can't explain why. Mostly because I also have position I think.

      Ow he is unknown.

      If you cbet you must have a plan to barrel imo. You can't cbet once and give up here, it's burning money against most opponents that have so many pairs in their range being slightly deep pre. On this specific runout it's OK to cbet once and give up imo.

      Fear of getting bluffed is not justified. If you think he can bluff unpaired hands you make a rational analysis and decide the best play with your hand.
