      I called IP , and played the hand quite straight forward when i folded on this flop, was this a weak play, could i have floated the flop here, as i just called pre flop the only overpair i can really rep is QQ which is how id play it

      Hello Castle93,

      Calling preflop is pretty bad here, especially you don't even know the opponent. Just fold it preflop, you wont play your hand profitable like that by just hoping for a hit of A/K. Then rather get it in preflop. Although most likely vs unknown I'd just fold.

      Best Regards.

      So you like a fold but wouldn't mind a 4 bet/ call 5 bet shove , and don't like ever calling here

      Yes, rather fold and with more information either to play for the stacks or not.
