      CO: $12.41 - VPIP: 39, PFR: 24, 3B: 11, AF: 2,6, Hands: 131

      UTG: $15.26 - VPIP: 66, PFR: 11, 3B: 0, AF: 0,9, WTS: 50, Hands: 44

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with 6 :club: A :diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.25) 9 :spade: 9 :club: 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($0.25) Q :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      River: ($0.25) 5 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.20, Hero folds

      I put the situation on the flop in Equilab and it turns out I am a slight favourite on this flop. Villain is possibly calling loose but his range is so superwide that I could even be betting for thin value with my A high. I can even catch additional equity on further streets. I could, however, just check and hope for a free showdown, which is likely since villain is so passive.

      And theoretically, if I bet this flop then I pretty much have to bet the turn as well to fold out his floats (maybe even better Ax hands), right?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Could easily take a stab on the flop whilst he has a lot of hands which we have beat.

      Best Regards.

      That should be usually the plan, we can't really Check/Fold the turn cause he has even worse hands which may floating.
