      Villain is 23/17/0.7

      This is a clear fold after turn bet right? or did I induce a bluff check raise with my smallish cbet? I should have bet around 2.3 - 2.7 and fold to a raise ? This way I burned money right?

      First things first: remember that it makes no difference being deep, when your opponent isn't :D What really matters is the effective stack (i.e. the smallest stack). Since your opponents are 100bb deep, you're playing with 100bb stack ;-)

      How many hands do you have on this guy? Do you have any specific reads?
      Against a strong value range, our equity is really bad, since even something like KQ has a lot of equity against us. It's really a matter of what kind of players he is. If he's super aggro, we should just get it in on the flop. If he's c/r a tight value range only, we should be folding. There are way too many hands that beat us.

      I think if you choose to call flop, you should jam blank turn. But in order to call flop, villain must be c/r stuff like Qx, maybe J9, AJ, etc. If the plan is to fold on a blank turn, we're better off folding on the flop, which is a pretty safe alternative. Against an unkown it's a good idea.
