      Hi. I am raising this preflop, because he can fold something preflop and I can still hit postflop. Maybe check would be a good option too to keep weaker Jx, Qx in his range.

      He seemed aggressive so I decided to c/S on turn having few outs if he doesn't have a flush. Well it's probably a spew but I have no idea what to do there. I don't want to check/fold and this way I can get value from his bluff. Thanks

      Hey,

      How about bet/folding ourselves? If you have no idea what to do you just have to follow & think about each viable line you can take. That is c/f, c/c, c/R, bet/f, b/call (5) that's it

      I think check/call & check/shove is terrible because his betting range is relatively stronger. Now I prefer bet/folding than bet/shoving for the same reason

      Best regards,
      Gerv
