      Hero (BTN): $13.45 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 4,7, Hands: 27584

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with A :heart: Q :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $1, 2 folds, CO calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.15) 7 :diamond: T :heart: 9 :heart: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.20, CO raises to $3.90, Hero folds

      So what to do on the flop? I have decent backdoor equity with my overcards + backdoor FD + some backdoor straight draws + I can make AK fold. However, the board is still somewhat dangerous as it may have hit a part of villain's range. So what do I do here? Just check behind and take the free card or is this board still good enough to cBet and get rid of villain's AK + keep him from bluffing?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Check behind the flop, not worth taking stabs there whilst the guy ain't even fully stacked. Doubt that you going to have much fold equity here.

      Best Regards.

      So if I was up against a bit tighter opponent I could still cBet? Because this particular non-fullstacked villain's range can include even medium SCs that hit this board very well whereas a tighter opponent will have more Ax and broadways such as QJ and higher + he will also be more likely to fold postflop as well?

      What makes you think that if you are against a tighter opponent you would have more fold equity? You would rather have fold equity vs looser guy cause tight guy will mainly have PPs which ain't folding here.
