      I would bet smaller on flop. We have initiative but our hand is not so strong that we wanna play big pots. I would bet $0,50-55. I understand you don't want to see any turn and so you bet big for protection but building pot is not a good think for our hand.

      Turn card is actually very nice card for us. We can represent it and also 2 barreling looks strong. I would bet weakish 2/3 of the pot. Also if ugly river comes we still have free showdown in many cases.

      Hello graefe78,

      If you are against some station then I guess you may even just Check it back and hope to see free showdown as well. And vs such a bet I am not folding either, good to see his hand. :)

      Best regards.
