      Anon table.

      Being on the other side, this hand finally made me understand, why very often it's better to cbet something like QQ on Axx flop then start ch/calling it... :D
      After flop ch/call his range is very much face up, something like 99-KK (never flushdraw, almost never Ax without stats/reads/dynamics), which puts him into an awkward spot, if I bet big again on the turn.
      What do you think?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      On drawy board it's different cause with KK/QQ or whatsoever you could even CB for value, so yeah, CBetting is still fine but on dry board you will never know actually what could be his range.

      Best Regards.
