      I always cbet monotone boards while being HU no matter whether oop or ip. Is it ok to do so? Do you think there is enough FEQ?

      How would you interpret his minraise? I guess I have to fold here anyway but his line doesn't seem very strong. Thanks

      I really make my decision on whether to cbet monotone boards dependent on the opponent. However, my standard is also to cbet.

      You usually don't run into opposition. Very rarely FD (maybe with pair), sometimes two-pairs, often sets and always flopped flushes. Those are just a very small part of his range, but it's very easy to fold to the raise as he almost always has you crushed or he has great equity.

      Additionally, people call simple FDs a lot less often on these boards than you might think, especially when they are full stack somewhat standard players. They just don't get any implied odds once the fourth diamond hits.

      I don't cbet these Boards as default without a hit, only when my opponent folds a lot of hands. Especially on the micros they call very bad FDraws etc.
      Your opponent folds only 33% overall on cbets, so a 1/2 PS cbet will be Breakeven, but I think on such a board he will fold less, so I wouldn't cbet here.
