[NL2-NL10] AKo NL10 FR - flop check raise

      Villain = 14/10/3.9AF/2.3pfAF/24wtsd/769 hands
      villains flop/turn/river aggression = 2.8/14.0/4.0

      Is c/c flop a better line to let villain try to barrell me off T+R. I wanted to protect against draws and get value from weaker AX, maybe AJ+.

      I thought villain would shut down turn and river with air/weaker pairs unimproved anyway and it would be hard for him to fold the flop w/ AX on this board. But then I looked at his aggression stats for the turn and thought he would be capable of barrelling on a wet(ish) flop like this.

      Plus being OOP, I dont wont to check the turn in case he checks behind and c/c flop, donk turn seems really strong. Not sure.

      Also is the check raise size too big?

      Hello muel294,

      Nah, I would most likely also Check/Raise there and get value from worse Ax hands and maybe even draws. We don't want to see Check behind on turn, nice hand!

      Check/Raise could be a bit smaller ~$2,20 but it ain't a huge deal. If he had an Ace he would most likely Call anyways.

      Best Regards.
