      Interesting this cbet. Its like for fold equity vs me and for value vs fish. But I am not sure, maybe this is for value because he puts me on FDs and so wants to maximize value beiing that deep and give worse implied odds for me.

      So could be that I gave up too easily. I in case I am in bad shape, I have backdoor equity.

      I actually like the fold here. I think that guy definitely has a piece of the board, and he is way less likely to bluff 4way AND with the fish in the hand. Even if he has a draw, he's gonna barrel Turn and maybe even River. You are just crushed by his range so best option is to fold early.
