      Hero?

      BU could easily be stealing with any2, so semibluffing him. I shouldnt cbet the flop though imo, nothing is going to fold.

      Why shouldn't you cbet? This is one of the best flops for you to cbet, you got overpair, button might have only air, and you can have some value from his broadway cards. If button is overplaying their overcards often after 3bet, you could even bet/shove here.

      I also prefer c-betting flop and going from there- if he is not going to c/f for example AQ then you gain an extra 0.25$ and can always bet turn again for value. Although if he does not have any showdown value (smt like Th9h), he would most likely just give up.

      best regards,
