for us cash player amir it's a strange concept, but at this stage where stacks are 20-40bbs deep and each chip is worth so much, pot control becomes essential.

Poker goals:
[ ] 7 figure score
[X] 8 figure score
Royal Flush

A check on the flop opens your opponent's range up a bit and is defs the preferred line against anyone decent. Once you bet tho, go with it imo. You're not that happy about it, but as already posted, you have some equity when called and if villain is ever folding a shove is just so full of win.

What's your checking range here assuming i'm 3betting this spot on the tighter side? I think i'd continue with almost all my value range, KK/QQ hands and also any bluffs, so i'm not sure if i should have a checking range at all?

Pretty sure i never c/b this board unless i have air/draws.

Betting nearly always gets through so with our value hands its pretty meh

def checking flop here, as played i def fold, i doubt he's ever folding here, feels like he has you beat almost all the time, he just has jj 10 10 kq aj a10 all time imo, like i dont even see this guy having a flush draw if he's decent, seems like a decent spot to just call flop with that and get payed when it comes a broccoli and maybe bluff if need be.

I do like checking the flop here dude with eff staks at 180k I think bet folding sucks way to much. Check calling i like a alot then evaluate turn if im ever betting the flop here its because im not folding.
