      I had played 1300 hands with this player who had good stats. I couldn't see him calling pre-flop with 22 33 or AQ so I presumed he was assuming I had missed the flop. This is one of my major leaks not giving up on flops when I miss and my c-bet gets re-raised

      Why do you think he won`t call with 22 or 33? He can easly set maining if he have good stats. So this is definitely in his range and all you have at the moment are backdor FD and 2 over cards. I have a lot of problems with AK as well. So if you miss the flop with them make c-bet if you can represent anything, and after re-raise just fold.

      Yes I guess you are right about 22 and 33. I think I was letting history with this guy cloud my judgement. And also the fact that he had good stats I thought he was trying to outplay me. I often think that when I miss with AK it seems very obvious but I think I'm being a bit paranoid

      Hello 0744379,

      Well, we don't have anything either? :D Standard spot to just Bet/Fold it, or depending on the opponent we might even just Check behind here and give away the pot if he is passive enough not to take stabs without having a hand.

      Best Regards.
