      I think Ch/f is too weak. he can call super wide. ch/c isn't good cause he gets practically 2 freecards. + he may call worse

      so thus we arrive OTT and he'll have a lot of floats , random 3th pairs/ GS in his range. So again if we bet flop we have to bet turn.

      I dont get it what's wrong being "weak" sometimes, especially against fish (if he really is one)... He wont observe your play, wont exploit you or anything. I'd say being "weak" in these spots could rather mean saving money.
      I dont say that cbetting this flop would be wrong (not the best board to bluff though), but I definitely wouldnt barrel this turn, terrible barrelcard, and doesnt gives us extra equity either.

      I definitely disagree. It's two separate choices.

      I just think we have more than 50% EQ OTF so check/fold isn't really good.


      And would you ch/f turn and make all his floats bluff us?

      No, that's why I'd ch/fold flop. It may seem weak, and we could have decent equity, but I dont have a plan on the turn without a hit (so most of the time), only ch/fold. I dont want to barrel him with Ace high. And if he checks the hand down, we could still be ahead sometimes.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Assuming that we could even be ahead with your Ace high there seems to be fine to play this way. Nice hand! Another option of course is to Check/Fold flop right away.

      Best Regards.
