      Hello

      Usually it's ok to bet 1 or 2 street there, but after buttons flat I think A or Q hit his range rather well, so there's not too much fold equity anyway.

      You should bet 2/3 on flop and on turn, though. Usually if you bet 2/3 for value and bet 3/4 as bluff you make your play exploitable and lose more chips when your opponents wake up with a hand :)

      make it easy on yourself and check fold flop unless villain has really high fold to cbet and plays fit/fold. you will get floated so often on this board and then have tough decisions on turns/rivers if you dont hit your 2 outer

      Hello windar021,

      Already on the flop you should ask if it's a good spot to CB. Whilst you don't know much about the opponent you may want to just Check/Fold it instead. Cause your fold equity ain't that high if you don't expect him to be folding enough. Nor the turn card ain't the best cause he has enough of Ax floats in his range.

      Best Regards.
