Hey adohole

I like your bet sizing pre flop and I like folding to the check raise. You played the hand fine imo and the line you took is pretty standard, I don't like checking back the flop as it's unlikely we will see a cheap showdown versus 2 opponents and we're also giving them a chance to draw out on us.

So c betting flop and folding to the check raise is good. Unless you have history or reads on player 2 it's going to be hard to fight back vs his check raise. The only way we can fight back is to shove all in and even then we don't have very much fold equity and I expect villains range to be 10x a lot of the time so were going to be called more often than not.

Your c bet sizing is a little on the big side especially as your so deep into the tournament, anything from 40% - 50% would be nice.

Cheers, Chris.
