      Hi,
      Can I raise here? Flop looks dry and he could c-beting, an if he calls there are many turn cards which I can bet again. Or just fold?

      I´d usually lead these situations, since my hand isn´t strong enough to c/c two streets and I also protect against overcards
      Also I can then decide to barrel any T or higher turn card or if I pick up equity with my flushdraw
      As played: I´d likely c/c once and then c/f turn if I don´t pick up my flushdraw or improve two pair or trips.
      If I improve I´d bet out myself or c/r depending how aggressive is player. If player is nit, then c/c is likely better option

      Hello daun666,

      If he is rather regular player then you can even Check/Raise the flop rather then Check/Call. With Check/Call we just wont make any hands to fold, would even prefer just folding more often than Check/Call.

      Best regards.
