      Hey veriz,

      23/13/200h 2.56AF
      RaiseCB 2/10

      Should I just bet/fold the flop? He reps really thin and his sizing isn't strong either. I called and expect to see a check OTT from his bluffs.

      He bets big now and I really wanted to call. He reps AQ and 99 but maybe he even 3bets AQ... I don't know. I just folded because a riverbet would suck
      But I feel like I better fold the flop if I can't stand a turnbet

      Maybe because he is... :)
      Not the best board to play back at the PFA, only draw is T9 and some gutshots, and it isnt very likely he plays Ax this way.
      Without any other reads/info, I agree with bet/folding, we just beat pure bluff.

      Good way to stop wasting money. Unfortunetly I make these "I call the flop, and see what he does on the turn, OK he's betting so I fold" plays too often, so one of my goals now to not make these sloppy flop calls unless I have a reliable read/info to be based it on, and his turn action really gives me extra information. Here I think it's not the case. If he's making some stupid bluff, why would he stop on the turn, we dont know anything about him in this regard...

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Agree on rather Bet/Fold the flop than Call the flop & then fold the turn whilst it might be the best card for us cause it makes less likely now him to have a hand. :)

      Best Regards.
