The symbolism of the click back

Usually the click back will be a sign of strength. One might even add that a click back often means that the player is very strong. A player bets, you make a check raise by raising three times his bet and your opponent over-raises you, but this time he click back. As we said before, this is often a sign of strength. A small raise so that we have no choice but to call and continue in the hand. A way for him to tell us "I have a very strong hand, I have no choice but to raise to maximize my winnings, but I don't want you to fold, so I'll give you a friend price". A player can also use click back to intimidate another player. A click back on the flop can discourage a player from making an aggressive move on the turn which will result in a cheap river.
