      Anon table.

      BB is a reg, not big sample, but he seems quite aggro pre and postflop as well.
      This is a perfect board for him to bluffraise, which I think he'd very often do if I cbet, but I dont know him enough to play bet/broke, or bet/call and calldown, so I wanted to preserve my decent showdown value, and present him the opportunity for bluffing.
      What do you think?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      But Check/Calling doesn't bring you far either cause this is one of the worst boards we would want to turn our hand into bluff-catcher. There are tons of cards which we don't want to see so therefore I'd even be more willing to Bet myself and reevaluate further actions.

      Best Regards.
