      Okay.. So I had AJ, and totally missed the flop. Decided to play C/R here. Is there any other line I should use? Because I can't improve my hand that much. Is it the best option to take the pot on the flop? He won't call my raise W/O hit..

      iPoker - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 6 players

      BTN: $3.34
      SB: $11.39

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has A:diamond: J:spade:

      Hero raises to $0.20, fold, CO calls $0.20, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.47, 2 players) K:heart: K:diamond: 9:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.23, Hero raises to $0.65, fold

      not that c/r isn't interesting vs a "weak tag" :f_biggrin: but you are forsaking any value that your hand might still have, if he calls you most likely are already almost drawing dead.

      Hello CPallo,

      You are risking with a lot money with the Check/Raise, whilst you could gain fold equity with CBetting and then even maybe improving your hand or at least reevaluating.

      Though I wouldn't say it's that horrible to Check/Raise, we still have got decent fold equity here vs his range and may even make better hands to fold.

      Best Regards.
