      AFflop/AFqflop 2,5/53
      WtSD/W$SD 41/14

      The flop is fairly good for me, i think i have good equity vs his calling range despite the overcard, so my cbet is for value (as my 3bet preflop), he can float me with PPs, Ahighs.
      What would you do after this raise? Not many hands he can (and would) raise here for value (AA/KK/QQ/44/55/AQ/KQ/QJ(?)), so bluffs are a big part of his range. I think folding would be weak as he is very agressive on the flop, so i considered calling (and ch/calling down), or 3bet/broke here, as he could turn some PPs into bluff as well, which maybe he's not willing to fold.
      What do you think?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Why do you think the flop is fairly good for you? His range contains a lot of Qx hands and at the same time he even raises enough of flops. I would rather turn my hand into bluff-catcher here and just Check/Call it than CB it.

      About either to continue on the flop or not it's mainly dependent on the opponent and what kind of dynamics we had there, from just the stats I can't say to you what would be the correct play. As I gave my advice already I would turn my hand into bluff-catcher on the flop myself and let him bet with worse hands as PPs/overcards or whatsoever.

      Best Regards.
