Once i bet the flop,, all bets are off....there is no looking back..
This hand plays much easier in 5-10 NL or 10-20NL cash game rather than in deep stack MTT>
I am trying to last longer...
.my goal is not too try to get it all In against flopped sets. to last long i have to play these boards perfect.
betting flop is right. why?
because the majority of his range is check/folding flop that if you check could a) bluff you out b) win the pot with something . Accumulating the pot, the massive amount of times he c/fs flop (considering we actually dont have a pair yet) is awesome. We shouldnt be expecting a raise that often. When we do however, we pretty much always have to go with it, knowing that it cant ever be bad. You seem like you are making excuses for not wanting to do it. Otherwise you should fundamentally know that in this spot its always standard.
Why pass up a +EV spot? I doubt you can make a case for it here, so gamble and get it in
