      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5:heart: , 5:diamond:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, SB folds, BB calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.34) Q:heart: , 2:spade: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.2, BB raises to $0.40, Hero...

      This is a good flop to c/r bluff as I'm just cbetting with almost all of my PFR range, but is that an excuse to play back? I think I prefer 4-betting as if I just call on the flop when do I fold?

      Hello Scooney,

      Well, I don't like 3betting that much on flop against that kind of opponent. As you see he is super passive and which tells us that he most likely even has a hand rather plays back against us. Plus if we had any kind of 2x/Qx we wouldn't 3bet the flop but rather just Call. Just Bet/Fold the hand and don't force yourself doing some stupid mistakes.

      Best Regards.
