The was no point of starting a hand with such cards if you do not c-bet such a flop. If Mid-pair looks too weak for you to c-bet , donít go into the pot with JTo then.
Ill agree with point 1... OP should buy in full
But i have to disagree with point 2.
Before i go on, OP, a 4x open sizing from the button is so far out of date its untrue... As is the argument that you should "never open raise less than 3x" - Steals OTB can be made to 2.5x for a huge improvement in your WR.
Anyway, JTo is a perfectly fine hand to steal with - even vs unknowns.
There is more reasons to open this pot than just for value... Its a steal attempt, you got called, play post flop poker.
Also this betting because we entered the pot nonsense is exactly that... nonsense. Dont ever bet because you feel the need to do so. You either bet for value or as a bluff. If you dont have a clue why were betting or your just auto 2/3 potting this flop for no real reason, I suggest some dramatic changes in your CB game - Gone are the days you can open raise pre flop, bet flop, win...
Here we have a tonne of SDV so I would likely take that as aposed to the flop thin value. - We also get the chance to incude a turn bluff or v. to ch/c lighter...
My default, if I dont fancy the thin value here, call (or bet) turn and evaluate river.
