      Just fold flop. You have nothing.

      Your way of thinking is interesting though. If you see he CBets too much you can definitely float and take the pot down later. But not on this board with this hand. He might even go for a x/c OTT if he has a pair + a heart.

      Remember that the cool stuff you see at higher stakes is done with reasons. There is very rarely a "pure bluff".

      Fold flop and wait for a better board/hand to do your floats.

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Preflop: You have to ask yourself already here what's the reason for calling? Especially if you know you are able to spew money postflop then it's not a good idea to do that.

      As played
      Postflop: Fold the flop! Your equity is going to be super-bad here and not beating many hands. Nor of course betting turn doesn't achieve anything, never make better hands to fold.

      Best Regards.
