      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BTN): $77.97 (311.9 bb) 28/22/1.7/14.8/80/50
      SB: $54.35 (217.4 bb)
      BB: $11.48 (45.9 bb)
      UTG: $28.39 (113.6 bb)
      MP: $10 (40 bb) 31/23/3.0/0.0/50/13
      CO: $24 (96 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 6
      MP posts BB OOP, UTG folds, MP raises to $0.50, CO folds, Hero calls $0.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.35) 4 K K (2 players)
      MP bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      So how about I raise his lame C-Bet on the flop itself as a semi-bluff?

      Turn: ($2.35) K (2 players)
      MP bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Don't wanna raise here cause he's just gonna fold weaker hands and I'm not really sure where I am and I think it might boil down to who has a better ace. I still have my draw but a full house is so much more likely here. So I decide to play way ahead way behind from here on.

      River: ($4.35) Q (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      Hi maheepsangari,

      1) He's repping nothing with this kind of cbet.
      2) You're repping nothing with a raise here.
      3) We don't care because he's probably playing fit or fold poker with a one shot-give up style.
      4) We have huge, huge, huuuuuge equity ... Go for it!

      Note: Never call these flops against a reg or somehow regish players who is leveling his own game a lot. (Hero calls, floating 229A with 44 etc) ... These guys will be leveling so hard that often they will 3bet you with air and you can just easily go broke :)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Raise the flop against such a CB, we have a lot of fold equity + we have an overcard + we have nutFD. Doesn't make sense those call-downs which don't bring you far.

      Best Regards.
