      No reads on opponent other than he isn't fully stacked.

      I feel like maybe giving up the initiative and calling the flop just set myself up for bad spots turn and river, my cbet is way too small to know where I am when he raises so should I make it 3/4 the pot and fold to a raise?

      What about as played?

      The small cbet might induce some lighter raises, but I think that villains range hits a lot on this board, he can have 2pair, sets, straight and some good combo draws, so I preffer folding on the flop as you dont even have backdoor flushdraw.

      When you call the flop, I think you should definitely fold the turn as now even all the FD's that raised the flop got there.

      Hello bradomurder,

      One of the worst boards to start to fight back against him, whatever he has will have decent equity against you. Which means we should be Bet/Folding the flop instead Calling.

      As played
      Turn: Nor of course calling here doesn't bring you here whilst FD also completed.

      Best Regards.
