[NL2-NL10] 99 on A-high board

      Hi there,

      these are the sort of hands I find very hard to play. I raise 99 (from MP1), end up out of position, bet the A-high-flop against a F-draw...

      After I get called I only check/fold the turn. Can I call that down? He could be on a F-draw, esp. on the turn and would prolly not fold to a 2nd barrel... or is it the inverse? I doubt he'd fold even any ace... and an ace is clearly in his range... I hate those hands!

      Thanks for your thoughts!

      Hello graefe78,

      Depending a lot on the opponent if he is somewhat passive guy then you can easily even Check/Fold the turn and give it up. If he likes to float a lot, even on A high boards then you might sometimes try even 2nd barreling there. But yes, he wont fold there his Ace anyways to our 2nd barrel.

      Best regards.
