      I just shove the flop. Half-pot bet serves nothing here - you don't use your whole fold equity to make him fold JJ or AK and if he has QQ+, AQ you're commited anyway and won't get away from it.

      If you 4bet preflop you def. have to go broke here if you are willing to do a cbet.

      $1.50 as a cbet is to small according to the potsize. The cbet has to be $2 - $2.30 and because that's more then your 1/2 stack left you have to openshove as a cbet.

      If you should do a cbet or not depends on reads in such situations. But if you are willing to do it you def. have to openshove.

      If you new villain is a nit and he def. only call your 4bet with something like QQ+ then I would recommend playing c/f but as long as he is able to call with weaker hands I think you have to go broke here and openshove as a cbet.
