      How should I play this? Now that I'm thinking clearly, probably check-fold all the way but I'm still torn. This guy can clearly fold some of the time, I know he did hit flops because I've seen him at showdown, every time he called he had something. Another advantage is that I have the gutshot and the backdoor, but that backdoor flush usually just makes me commit more money since I can't check-fold when it does hit but I don't have folding equity either. Check-calling is good some of the time when they choose awful betsizings but I'm OOP and it's still hard to extract money when I hit. Even fish get scared when the flush comes :)

      PS : Maybe i should have folded preflop :D because all the problems that came up are pretty general and it's hard to play this against a fish OOP.

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      Nah, I wouldn't be folding those hands preflop, especially when have fish in the hand. But otherwise as played I don't even mind your play. Flop is still CBettable cause of the GS+backdoor FD and of course fold equity. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
