      No sense in c-betting this flop. He will float you with many hands and you'll have to give up on many turns.

      I would definitely go for c/c. Sometimes I even c/call his bet and reevaluate on turn. It's definitely ugly spot but if player looks solid folding is fine too.

      QQ are not your lucky hand ha? GL :)

      Hello dudiloiu,

      While it's a 3bet pot I don't think that he would raise that often with just FD, could easily be against AK or whatsoever and maybe even has A. Although I don't really mind Bet/Folding there against that kind of passive player. The problem with Check/Call is that we will never know where we stand with our hand, while with betting the flop we might secure us a free showdown and as well protect from nutFD.

      And how would you proceed if you for example hit on turn your flush if you Check/Call the flop? And not a flush comes?

      And of course while he still could try Calling us with any kind of type of card which is for example TT/JJ and of course Ax and of course there is a wide range which will fold just like that on the flop.

      Best regards.
