      Against big c/r imo you have two options on the flop. You either going to shove expecting him also to c/r there draws (like 78s or flushdraws) or you´re going to put him on set and going to fold. You may count that you have 8 outs, but if you don´t really see river most of the times, then your equity is quite bad on the flop. You improve only 17% of times on the turn, which means most of the times you give away your 4.30$ without seeing showdown.

      If I add some draws to his big c/r range it turns out you´re flipping his range, so personally I´d shove against midstack:

      board: 2d6d9c
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      Ad5d 47.22% 7,480 0
      22, 66, 99, 78s, JdTd, KdQd, KdTd 52.78% 8,360 0

      Hello BGawli,

      Without any information I'd just Bet/Fold it right on the flop than go broke. We can't put him such drawing hands into his range while we even don't know him. His range doesn't look that weak either! And of course in long run we can't Call the flop for implied odds.

      Best Regards.
