      Hi Grave

      Post-Flop: on such a dry board I think bet/fold line is the best here. We have to ask ourselves

      "would my opponent chk/raise with a worse hand?"

      In all likelihood no. He would have to overplay AT or something. In addition there are no draws out there for him to be semibluffing at. On a wetter board we might have to reconsider. Especially against a tight reg who is playing OOP. It is much more likley to be 2pr+ and sets. I think he would even chk/call with AQ in this spot.

      turn is a must fold, we are beat plain and simple. He would have to be really bad,aggro / maniac to have worse here.

      Hello GraveGoods,

      What worse will be raising you on flop? I doubt that there is going to be many of them. I'd rather just Bet/Fold it and let it go. :)

      Best regards.
