No info is available on the villain but I don't think it matters for this hand anyways.
I am not terribly upset over this hand as I know what I did was not something terribly wrong. But what I don't know is whether this is the right way to play the situation?
I could call that flop bet and fold the turn if someone bets big. However I don't believe that's a great way to play given the size of the flop bet, I have to raise or fold is my logic. AA and TT are ahead of me but I believe I have good equity against JJ-KK. Obviously I am behind 2 pair or better flopped hand.
So what I really want to know is how should one play in such situations? I mean I can't call a 4BB pre flop bet only to fold on that flop right? I am fairly certain if I had just called the villain would have raised anyways in which case I would be getting pot committed and would still be a shove or fold decision.
The amount of times that everyone is going to fold after my bet compensates for the fact that if I do get action it will mostly be against better hands. Is this the right logic?
