Did I play this ok? BB is a weak reg, I think he has an Ace here a lot. I check\called the turn because I figured if I check he can bet a Q or maybe he picked up a FD. Decided to check the turn as I think his calling range on the river beats me and if he'd bet again I would've folded.

Hello Wurble,

Most likely I would even consider Check/Calling the flop vs reg rather CB and then Check/Call. If I do pick such a line then I Check/Fold the turn.

Best Regards.

Thanks Veriz. He's a bad reg though! So, if we check\call the flop, check the turn and he bets you always assume he has the Ace? I thought that my flop cbet would look standard in case he was paying attention, so I could be doing this with most of my range and then when I checked the turn I hoped that he would bet a Q or FD. If I'd bet the turn then for sure I think he would only call if I was beat.

If we check\call the flop and check\fold the turn with KK on an A high flop are we not leaving ourselves open to be bluffed all over the place? Or do you figure it's best to go for the low variance option wait for a better opportunity?

Nah, they tend not to bluff 2 streets. Especially if he ain't a maniac.
