      I like to check in these spots, to get value from his hands that will fold to Cbet. If he check back the turn, i can easily get the money on the turn and the river.

      i usually check, click the time bank and then call to let them bluff. However, when he bets so big, perhaps a shove is better, because he might call with AQ/AJ, because of the pot odds and he probably won`t bluff the turn with 8$ left into pot of 24$?

      Hey,

      Just call imo.. there are almost no scare cards if he wants to thinly vbet against you plus his bluffs spew it in almost always.. This is a bit paranoid thinking from me since very often when I do think they are commited and ship it in I still get a fold when they get sick pot odds. Apart from that, his flop sizing is showing of a poor postflop approach in 4bet pots. He should bet about $3 there whether it's value or bluff.

      I did call and he checked the turn and folded the river. After that, i was wondering if shoving the flop is better.

      What was the turn and river? If they weren't scare cards, he probably just spewed some on the flop and gave up.. I doubt he folded any remotely good hand.
