      cbet flop is good in my opinion.

      I like betting the turn to balance when the A actually hits your hand (although who cares about balance at nl10), with the intention of checking back all non 8 and K rivers unless you have decent history or pick up a read to suggest otherwise.

      Against stronger players I think I actually prefer checking behind on the turn, as its harder to get called by worse. However I suppose this villain can still call with a decent amount of worse hands, although its hard to tell without stats.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      If you expect to have fold equity then why not. Though he ain't even fully stacked so which could mean that he is less likely to fold Qx there. :)

      Best Regards.
