      Hello,

      SB seemed like a thinking player, who tried to steal my BB for the secon consecutive time.

      My postflop plan was to attack certain low, not draw heavy flops even if he cbets. The A is pretty much in his range and on this flop I can hardly represent a strong hand so I decided to fold to the cbet. Was my plan OK?

      Thanks and best wishes!

      Hello Dback357,

      When he even does have a very wide range then you can sometimes even float the flop and when he usually Checks the turn it's a sign of giving up the hand. Because if he had the Ax he would definitely bet it. But of course folding directly ain't wrong either.

      Best regards.
