      Hey veriz!

      Villain plays 28/20/76h and looks a bit fishy. He folded 0 out of 1 times to cbets.

      Firstly I was thinking check/fold cause he might have called with low cards being fishy. Because I had the nut BDNFD I went for the cbet WITH THE PLAN OF 2ND BARRELING. Why I didn't do it? I thought this turn was in favour of his callingrange.

      I think ch/folding flop is fine.
      As you wrote that he seems fishy, I wouldnt start bluffing him, not really a good board anyway, plus most of the turn bets would still also be bluffs, and we dont know anything about how loose he could calldown.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      With the backdoor equity + also even overcards are outs then I don't mind such a play. Well played, other option would be to Check/Fold the flop right away.

      Best Regards.
