      Hi,

      I'm very unsure how to play that hand correctly. I think my flop bet should have been bigger like 1.10 or so. Apart from that, dunno how to react to his raise. I thought a fold would be to weak, he could be on a draw or pure bluff, so i called (was thinking about reraising too). Turn is a blank, i decided to check and see what happens. After his bet i think it's a fold/shove decision, because if i call i'm committed anyway (he will have ~5$ left in a 14,xx$ pot). What would have been the optimal line?

      Hello HughJazz82,

      Flop: I'd most likely just Bet/Fold it here cause we are also OOP, even if he doesn't have a made hand he will have definitely decent equity against our hand.

      As played
      Turn: Do you think he is going to even 2nd barrel here if he gets a free cards with draws after our Call? You also hold the nutFD A. But then again what's the purpose of calling the flop and folding the blank turn?

      Best Regards.

      That's the point. If i call the flop and fold on that turn, something looks wrong. If i call that turn i am committed.
      Of course bet/folding flop is a possible play, but then which hands are we not folding vs. a flop raise? Only sets, AA-JJ and draws? Why should i play JJ differently than AT? If i fold AT here, i fold almost my entire range. Not sure if this can be good.

      So, and what's the problem here? It's not a board which gonna be like every 2nd time. :) What's weak there to Bet/Fold it, please tell me. :)
