      Hello ragney,

      Actually it's kinda close, I'd often say that those players on those limits don't Check/Raise that often with just draws, most often they have a made hand, 2pairs+ and also there are a lot of combos which beat us. Therefore to avoid any further mistakes like Calling us on any X turn, which ain't helping the villain, I'd just Bet/Fold on flop. If you have some good reasons to continue there then give them out. As played of course against some aggressive players who likes to play his draws that way we can Call there but I'd Bet/Fold turn a bit bigger, ~$3.

      Best regards.

      Yeah I understood already from your question, that he had a weaker hand. But I'd rather not risk that often against such opponents. More often Check/Raise is a strong hand. I'd definitely take a note on him.
