      Unknown opponent .

      As in the previous hand I decided that there is nothing worse going to call besides draws . But what am I going to do on turn if he just calls Flop and turn is :diamond: bet again or check/fold ?

      2. If the situation is the same , but the flop is dry and goes check check , Should I bet the turn since he has probably some brodways from which I want to steal equity ?

      with AK it's o.k. to semi-bluff cbet, unless the board is particularly ugly. On this board I would actually cbet, then check-fold turn, as opposed to check-call and check-fold.

      When your opp calls your 3-bet preflop here, he normally has something; well, anything from 89s+ to 88+. This means that while villain could connect with the flop, it's not a fact.
      Your 3-bet and c-bet should be representing a pocket pair, which looks good with this flop, and might make him fold on the flop. If he doesn't - check-fold turn.
      By check-calling flop you leave yourself very vulnerable, even if a king or an ace comes on turn.

      P.S. It is probably o.k. to check-fold flop, as it is safer against an unknown op and saves you 16BB

      Yep you are righ I should continue with 100% of my range on this flop for balancing issues.
      But against opponent I might never see again it shouldn't be very bad if I don't balance.

      Hello hohoho321,

      You don't achieve anything with the Check/Call, how do you plan to make him fold? If you want to continue then rather CBet and have even some fold equity than Check/Call, pretty the worst play you could pick. If checking then I'd Check/Fold.

      Best regards.
