      I would fold the flop bet.

      You have no odds to call and only 3rd pair

      i would call here, because you are def. not drawing out against an overpair, and you can often get him to fold kq/aq/ak etc on the turn. Don't understand why you waited for the river though...

      Re-raise with nothing. Again don´t understand that. If I hit 4, 3 or 6 or another small card comes I could bet out turn. Check/re-raise would be pushed or called better hands and maybe even Ax. I build big pot with nothing and then I still have to check/fold turn unimproved.

      thats right. A c/r would be a bluff. You could do it with nearly with any2, because if you get called, villian has a better hand.
      But the problem with calling is this:
      If you c/c the flop, it seems quite weak (for example, you would raise a set). And you can´t call another bet on turn on river, but usually villian will bet on turn and/or on the river for value with a better hand or as a bluff, because you show a lot of weakness.

      c/c flop + donk turn is a bluff, too. If you get called on the turn you are beat. (in this example the turn is special, because you hit an one-card-idiotend OESD; but you can´t assume to this).
      Then c/r the flop is better, because he will fold more hands and he don´t get the change to improve.


      because of this, i think c/f flop is fine. It is very very hard to play this hand oop profitable.
