      Hello Avatars91,

      Guess you could still take a stab on the flop cause you may protect from overcards. If he calls we can always Check behind and reevaluate further actions, doubt that you are going to see many Ax hands which Bet the river.

      Best Regards.

      Is this not the kind of a board where villain is likely attempting to bluffcatch instead of giving up? Especially with his cBetting frequency.

      Well, do you know that? Until you do then just threw a Bet and find that out. CB frequency for 4 situations isn't really correct. :)

      1) So, it is not the case that on average people who have somewhat decent VPIP/PFR values usually tend to cBet bluff this flop and check/call weak Ax, or medium–high PPs for bluff induce? And such an assumption would again be an indication of a somewhat robotic approach, i.e., to think that "oh, he checks, THUS he is probably on a bluffcatcher"? Whereas the right approach would be – we don't really know that about him and given the vulnerability of our PP we are better off just protecting our hand and if he calls, we now actually have some information and next time we can easily just check behind vs him in a similar spot?

      2) Thus similarly we can probably also bet smaller PPs as well? And check behind TT–JJ?

      Not really, they could have anything there. Some may CB, some may not, some may CB mainly for value only. You also have a lot Ax hands in your range and you have to figure out which opponents are the best to CB.

      Though that might be also the case that if they do that they may easily trap you as well. Those hands are more likely to Check behind which ain't vulnerable. Though even 99s are possible to Check behind, mainly depends on the opponent and how we see him.
