      Flop: ($5.25) 3 A 6 (3 players)

      Turn: ($12.25) Q (2 players)

      Hero checks, CO bets $14, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      I dont remember their session stats, but as they are not fullstacked, I guess they were fishy.
      River? Rather ch/call? Weaker Ax would probably checkbehind, but flushdraw is busted. On the other hand, as you also wrote in some previous posts, I had bad experiences with these halfpot bets (rarely bluffs)... :)

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      One of the options to take is to block-bet yourself something like $8-10 if we assume him being rather loose which means also weaker Ax hands. It also doesn't allow him to bluff, though if I am going for a Check then most likely rather Check/Fold vs his play.

      Best Regards.
