      Hello becky1464,

      I'd CBet on flop ~$0,18 or something similar and rather just Check/Fold the turn, he wont be Calling us with a lot worse anyways, unless he has a draw which he is willing to Check behind very often anyways and bet with hands like Ax.

      Best regards.

      wouldn't a check raise on the flop be better here? u raised pre - flop so you can rep a strong hand but still fold to a large re raise. most weak to mid aces will fold in this spot. I know if he checks behind you give a free card but you still have control of the pot then,turn card optional of course

      Howdy,

      I doubt he will fold Ax in this spot, that's NL2 and if you try to represent you have Ax or something similar yourself you'd usually bet out yourself standard cbet to protect your hand against draws and stuff like that to avoid giving free cards. So c/r just doesn't make much sense. Ofc NL2 may not notice that, but anyways he will just fold weaker hands and keep playing everything else.

      Good luck!

      you have a point but if you look at it as played,about the same chips invested for the same out come.
      And I've sen a lot of checked weak aces when there's a flush draw on the flop.
