      UTG1 checks, Hero ?

      Hello.

      Should I just check behind and try to get to showdown as cheaply as possible if I do not hit? Or c-betting flop is better and just give up to a raise? Thanks

      Hello,

      I think you should still bet against a loose/passive player. There are many overcards in his range and also if he calls you can take a free card on the turn with OESD. When he raises he probably has you beat.
      Against a tight player who limp/calls it would be probably better to check behind and play for pot control.

      Hey John,

      Just valuebet on your limit, it makes no sense to give away a free card and apply BSS concepts like showdown value

      Best regards,
      Gerv
