      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5:spade: , 5:club:
      6 folds, SB raises to $0.12, Hero calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.24) 8:diamond: , 7:spade: , 3:diamond: (2 players)

      SB checks, Hero bets $0.3, SB folds.

      Final Pot: $0.76

      i'm just curious, the guy is pretty taggy over a fair sample and i just saw his flop bet as a cbet with overcards so i decided to float even though i know nothing about the specifics of floating, all i know is that it involves calling a cbet and betting the turn to steal. it seems to pay off well and i tend to do it when i have some kind of hand like that. i don't make a habit of doing it but should it even be part of my play at this stage?

      Hello DrDunne,

      Nothing much to add. You can sometimes even consider raising it right on flop as well.

      Although such boards are very good to float and even against such a bet size. Which often the case that they are giving up on turn if they don't have a hand. If they continue it's more likely that they do have since they need to protect their hand.

      Best regards.
