      Just raise it flop since the villian will fold to a turn bet if he has air? If he has the hand on flop (Ax and Tx) he won't fold it to a raise?

      Hello ragney,

      Actually I like the way you played against that guy, just a cooler. But I'd likely raise a bit bigger on turn, ~$3.

      Best regards.

      I'm wondering why a raise on the flop is bad. If he has a hand he will call it on the flop. If he doesn't he will fold.

      If I just call down the flop, he will fold to a turn bet if he doesn't have a hand.

      Howdy,

      I'd say calling flop is better just because it's pretty dry and if he's going to 2nd barrel (and he may do that pretty often given his AF) we allow him to do that - so he can bet his air/bluff hands, but ofc we want to get his stack so we have to raise at some point.

      Good luck!

      I think that calling on flop keeps his bluffs and maybe Tx hands, because your opponent is aggressive and loose, calling you let him to bluff one more time, so you have chance to gain one more bet which you would not, if you had raised on flop. If he has ace your both money will go in or river without flop raise anyway, even with your small raise on turn pot became 6$ and he had left ~4$ on river so most of the time he is going all in, although bigger raise on turn would be better.

      You already answered you own question it's the reason because the board is so dry, and there aren't that many hands which would continue. Why to make him directly to fold while he could hit on turn lets say a good pair or something similar, which he might pay us off. Also we keep this way bluffs in the pot.

      And as you said he will fold on turn if you bet then that's standard, he wouldn't Call the flop either, he would folding on flop to the raise the same way as he folds on turn. But with Calling we give him the chance to hit at least some pair or something similar and maybe even considers to go broke. Such situations where he hits his set and has a FH, ain't that often, more often you will get paid of by some worse hands.
