      CO plays 66/19 (54 hands)
      AF: 1.9

      Stacks:
      UTG (€121.09) 242bb
      CO (€114.26) 229bb
      BTN (€63.29) 127bb
      SB (€41.38) 83bb
      cincinkid (BB) (€63.60) 127bb

      Pre-Flop: (€0.75, 5 players) cincinkid is BB J J
      1 fold, CO raises to €1.50, 1 fold, SB calls €1.50, cincinkid raises to €6.25, CO calls €6.25, SB folds

      Flop: K Q K (€14, 2 players)
      cincinkid bets €7, CO calls €7

      Cbet should be standard, but what should i do if he calls and on the turn is a blank?
      If i check it to him it's possible that he makes a bluff so rather bet again?

      Turn: Q (€27.30, 2 players)
      cincinkid checks, CO bets €14.50, cincinkid folds

      Even Ax beats me so time to let go.

      Why exactly do you think a c-bet here is "standard"?

      Why do you want to prevent your opponent from bluffing when you hold a bluff-catcher?

      Why would you bluff with a good bluffcatcher when you can bluff with pure-bluffs instead?

      If you do decide to cbet and you get called, you should probably c/f the turn.

      Hello chocular77,

      From what do you get called on the flop which is worse in 3bet pot? Don't like the CB here. But as played exactly into such a spot you put yourself if you CB, he could even be floating there and then just taking stabs on you. But not much we can do there while even Ace high has beat us. :D

      Instead what we could do is to 2nd barrel as if we decided to CB but if it's going to be worth vs such a guy? Not really, instead we should consider just Checking the flop in first place and would be differently possible to play our hand as Check/call the flop and reevaluate the turn.

      Best Regards.
