      He can also make sometimes plays smt like pair+fd or turn his 66 into bluff, but generally sets are mostly in his range. I think against unknown b/f is better, with reads you can also b/c and then call him down

      Given the board is super dry and he called your UTG raise from SB I can also see you checking back the turn and betting the river.

      There are few hands that can call you on the turn that you still are ahead off (unless he is a fish). Second pair type hands will call at most 1 more street and there are very few, if any, Kx that are worse than you.

      Hello figeljfigelj,

      Bet the flop bigger like $1,20 at least. You might induce him to take such a line with bluffs if you bet that weak, you kinda representing that you have a weak hand which doesn't try to take value. Otherwise I'd also Bet/Fold the turn like $2.

      Best regards.

      i would also bet bigger the flop 1.20$ is fine, but i don't see why i should bet the turn because there are no draws posisible(is unlikely to have the flush draw) and i don't think he is calling worst too often...if i check the turn he might want to bluff the river or if he checks i can thin value bet against a 99,TT or any poket that might put me on over cards and decide to make a hero call
