      I think it's fine if you've played with him long enough and sense that lower than standard bet sizes mean weakness, I would probably size it to around 65cents though

      By doing this play I think you're gonna have to bet some turns like K, Q or spade

      Hello Imimba1,

      Well, you continue with the weakness whilst your Check/Raise size is also weak, you wouldn't do that with strong hands. :) Doubt he is folding made hands.

      Best Regards.

      Yeah, bad for bluff, no stronger hand is going to fold.

      Just fold it?

      It's not a horrible spot to bluff, though having AsJx would be better.

      The problem is that it's a drawy board, so standard opponents tend to shove made hands to protect. In order to avoid that and get more fold equity, you have to make a bigger raise and make it look like you want to play for stacks.

      Most likely better option unless you also understand why you doing it and what kind of sizing you have to pick. :)

      I have such a great urge to call the flop. We are surely ahead enough.
      Or I should think ahead, and expect further bets, and that is why is's a fold?

      And what is your plan on the turn if he bets again? :) You don't much information on him and as we have seen you clearly start to overplay your hands, so floating for you is rather NONO case.

      He bets with strong hands this amount on this flop I guess.
