      I don't know what the best line would be for these boards ...
      I mean, should I really be c/f all day long AK when the board is bad for cbetting?

      Ofc c/c is bad, but at least it shuts people down and makes them more cautious and they don't 2nd barrel that often on such bad boards unless they have a real hand.

      Cbetting is also bad, people almost never fold there, they float with all overcards etc they have there in a 3bet pot with position ...

      Standard is "cbet or c/f and GTFO" ... but like I said, bad board to cbet ... lets say I do cbet, they ofc peel one street with overs ... I check turn, obv I don't have shit, they float and now I have to fold for sure ...

      But instead of cbetting, I let them put in the "cbet" for me and when they see me c/c, they are more likely to check back T as well with pure air hoping to hit river or maybe even AJ/AQ high is good and 2nd barrel their pairs etc.

      C/f seems so weak when I know they have overcards most of the time themselves ... c/c is bad too ...

      Would the solution be c/r to fold out their unmade hands?

      1) I would just c-bet and give up if get called. c/c is reasonable if you think player is never going to bluff turn, since I think you can´t call him down with A high. Not sure about your river shove. I guess he would fold there worse pp-s or smt like A4, but a lot of times he is going also to bet these hands on the river, so your A high should still be good enough times to go to showdown
      2) Again not the scariest board where to c-bet/fold and if you decide to check there then I think it is c/f. You can´t call any turn card, you´re hoping he has unpaired hand and you AK would win at showdown. He has 6$ left on the turn and would you really going to c/f there AK if he shoves?
