      CO 26/11, Cbets flop 75(3/4) so far

      What other line could be better here?
      I was considering leading flop, or checkraising flop right away.
      Ch/call flop, donk turn, or ch/call flop&turn, donk river is also a possibility. I didnt want to check 3street to checkraise river, because he was very passive on river so far, and I was afraid of a checkbehind.
      What do you think?

      I like your play here and think you have to c/r the turn to build the pot

      only other option I would consider would be c/r the flop to balance how you play sets

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Check/Raising the turn doesn't make sense, cause you will just make a lot hands to fold there with it. What we could consider doing there is just to take initiative ourselves and donk the flop.

      If I Check/Call the flop then the same goes for turn and Check/Shove the river for value. He is most likely betting anyways overpairs there.

      Best Regards.
