      Hi,
      today i realised that i have huge problems with cbetting with PPs. For example when 2 overcards show up on the flop i really don't know what to do. I can't expect many worse hands to call me (excluding draws) and only few better would fold, but if i check i fear i'd be bluffed out of the pot too often.

      Thanks

      1) c-bet is better, since he would sometimes call with worse hands and you won´t get bluffed out the pot if you check back and fold to turn bet. If you get called you can check it down or if he bets river then decide if he is valuebetting there Ax or is bluffing
      2) I think check back is ok. You have equity on the hand and at the same time you don´t want to bet and then get all-in on that board. You have option to check it down or bet turn if checked to you. He should call with worse hands and draws
