      stats 66/18 af 1.0.
      I thought he will CB on this flop so check/raised.
      Even FD, is it profitable?
      or bet/call flop and check/shove turn is more better?

      hello

      It's very unlikely that he holds a draw on this board, so check/call would be better.
      By calling you keep hands like KK,QQ,JJ,TT in, which will likely fold on your raise.

      On that blank turn card, you can check/call again, he will bet his AT,AJ and maybe some of his big PPs again.
      If he checks behind, i would bet something small on the river and get value from his worse Ax hands, and maybe some big PPs.

      Hello

      I don't like your call preflop at all versus this 66/18 player. Why don't you 4bet for value?

      What are you going to do when the Flop is:
      1* 2 3 9 ?
      2* J T 2
      3* 8 7 6

      Assuming you check & he cbets but if you want to deviate from that, that is fine but then explain to me why you want to deviate :)

      1 check/fold because AF shows he wouldn't trash his PP or some draws
      2 check/shove cuz monster draw and he may fold his top pair.
      3 check/fold cuz AF shows I'm almost always behind.

      Well AF=1 which means he is equally betting&raising than calling. It does not say much actually as it is a dependent variable


      2 check/shove cuz monster draw and he may fold his top pair.
      First I do not think he is going to fold Toppair in a raised or reraised pot. That would be absurd folding his JT+

      2nd I do not think you have a monster draw. You only have a gutshot and reduced outs if he has a pair+broadway card

      So I would check/fold here


      3 check/fold cuz AF shows I'm almost always behind.
      Well if you are folding in this spot then you should not call preflop more or less due ranges

      I still 4bet preflop here given his preflop statistics
