      Hello GazAsh2002,

      You should try analyze more your TP type of hands or overpairs. And then just pick the opponents view, with what do you think he would pick such a line and what type of hands do you beat there? Just try asking such questions. And usually on such a board I'd definitely rather Bet/Fold it than go broke. Straight bets us, sets beat us, 2pairs beat us and therefore we like beat some combodraw against we might get at the best some kind of coinflip. And going broke on flop without any good reason ain't that profitable. Hopefully it helped. :)

      Best regards.
