      Hey veriz,

      Villain:
      45/25/186h big fish.
      38% CB.
      3.25 AF

      Flop
      My first thought was to bet here to gain myself 2 freecards and make him fold some Ax.
      After the hand I realised that he could easily check/raise me here. He is UTG and opens 4x so I already think he has a strong range. And he doesn't CB such a dry board... Also his CB frequency is very low so he might Ch/R more often than others. We can always stab the turn if he checks again.

      What do you think?

      And do we just give up if he Cbets?

      I check this flop behind. Villain has a strong range indeed and even with suck a low cbet frequency, I have little doubt he would cbet a hand like ak.
      If he checks again on the turn you can take a stab which will work alomst every time.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Checking behind can be also pretty standard here cause if he doesn't Bet the flop he wont Bet the turn either. If he Checks the turn we can always take a stab there. :)

      Best Regards.
