      Imo board is too drawy to contibet on the flop.
      But if I would contibet then I would make it pot- then I have some fold equity.
      Never c/c with A high on the turn.
      If you think that player is betting to take down the pot, then c/rai, but on that board you´re get called too often.
      I think best is just c/f- you can´t win all the pots and calling down A high can´t be profitable

      Makes sense. I put him on a flush draw, bluffing after my check. But in that case i should have c/r. Thanks

      Is a turn fold also good?

      The 9 completes the straight or gives a straight draw top pair so only possibility left you can win is when he has a flushdraw in all other cases u lose.

      78s
      don't think he has top pair here he would raise to find out where he's at

      Well, c/f turn is what Kaitz20 suggested and what you said makes a lot of sense. However, it seemed to me that the turn didn't help him based on the size of the bet, which is why i read flush draw.

      I don't agree: with a flush draw, on the turn, either I check or I bet two thirds of the pot. I don't want to get called, given that I have just a few outs on the river.

      Check-fold is the best option here
