      Hi, Andy.

      I think it was well played, not much you can do there. If you play ch/c again you won't charge his draws like flush draws or pair+gutshots.

      So the spot is very thin but I think against a bad player it might work often enough and you will be called by worse hands. Against good players, though, you will only make them fold everything you beat and they'll almost only continue with what beats you (mind that this opponent of yours tend to fold a lot postflop since he has a very low WTSD). So against good, aggressive opponents you could play check call again and either check call or check raise river in my opinion.

      Other than that, well, unlucky he had you beat. Just dust it off and keep it up!

      Hello AndyWB,

      I'd really rather prefer to Raise it right on the flop and protect my hand. There are going to be so many cards which we don't want to see, if he doesn't have a hand he wont pay us anyways. :)

      Best Regards.

      I think my 3-bet range is too tight, so I can see the value of that play here. Always worried that the 4-bet range of opponents in NL2 is stupidly weak though and don't think I can call/shove over a 4-bet with AJ.

      If we are 3betting it then we are most likely planning to do it for 3bet/Fold.
