      Hello Imimba1,

      I am just curious, why do you think that he most of the time doesn't have a ? :D And what about an Ace? :)

      Best Regards.

      It's pure math. If I get a random hand, it's 42% that I have a :heart: . But with one in my hands, and 3 on the board, it's 32%. (I'm very good at math, believe me pls :s_love: )

      Well, 68% of the times he doesnt even has one :heart: .

      I'd just bet and collect the dead money. I dont wanna see so many cards.

      What do you think?

      He might call with a lot of hands, the wet board only makes his fold more unlikely. I'd never cbet here as I think I have no fold equity.

      I think you need to think a little further about why you want to c-bet.

      On balance, in my view its probably a decent decision (its close), but I would say for me the rationale would be different:

      1. Hands that miss the board will fold to you, and given your hand they probably have half decent equity against you (ie. at least two over-cards to your hand and potentially gut shots).

      2. The range of hands that call you are probably only around 60% odd equity against your hand, so your still not in bad shape. To clarify, the range will include:

      Open Ended Stright Draws
      Flush draws
      Combo Draws
      Pairs
      Two Pair / Sets

      The only problem is that if your opponent is aggressive they may raise you will a fair chunk of this range - Removing your equity.
