      Which lines can we use here? Does our turn check-push isolate our hand?

      Check push is bad if we are deep. Check push turn is good if we are 40-50bb deep.

      Here we have around 55bb which is probably fine for a check push. Rmb to always consider pot sizE vs remaining stack size. Smaller the stack size (larger the pot), the more important protection is.
