      Hi,

      Players would not really c/f Ax hands (especially since they limped pf) and since KJ also got there I would prefer giving up and folding against his river bet.

      He has there Ax, Qx most of the times and you can´t really make him fold tp hand- so I would prefer just going for value if I have AT or better

      best regards,

      You mean his flop bet, right?

      Hmm not sure what you mean... can you elaborate a bit more? Thanks in advance.

      hand history shows that he limped, you raised pf and he called. Flop c-bet generally is fine, but once he calls, he very likely has there Ax, Qx or some gutshot (KJ, TJ). Since he would not fold better hands on the turn I would prefer just giving up and checking back turn to then fold his river bet

      - since he would not fold Ax or better hands then your turn bet is not profitable (you only get called by better hands)- so I would not bluff that spot, but only valuebet if I have good Ax hand (AT-AK) or Qx/straight/boat.

      best regards,
