      Hero?

      I just don't know what to do in these kind of situations. We are OOP, and a very dry flop came. Basically nothing is going to fold here. I can't 3barrel with A high.

      You're contradicting yourself there. If it's a dry flop, that means very few hands will connect with the board, therefore many hands will fold there to a cbet, which is exactly what I'd do here. I'd cbet around $0.1.

      +1

      I would also c-bet that board 100% unless BU is often raising my c-bets. You can represent 22-AA and BU might easily have just broadway hands that he is going to fold. I would barrel on T-A and diamonds and consider firing 3rd barrel if it is scary card or improving my hand

      best regards,

      I need approx 15% folding equity with my 6 overcards outs, and not to mention the backdoor flush :f_biggrin: .
