      I'm not a big fan of check folding here. We have the best hand still and some equity (2nd nut flush draw).

      I think we can bet/fold the flop. I doubt villain will bluff/semi-bluff many hands. If you really believe he is really aggro and can stack off light (ex: JhJc) and/or you have seen him get out of line then bet/go with hand is fine as well.

      I think this is what I must be up against if I bet and get raised.


      Board: A:club: T:club: 6:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    33.15%  33.15%   0.00% { QdQc }
      MP3    66.85%  66.85%   0.00% { TT, 66, ATs, AcKc, ATo, AdKc, AhKc, AsKc }


      If I C-bet pot to $1 and get raised to say 2.5, I'll pretty much have the equity to move in so I don't think it should be a bet/fold.

      Maybe I should C-bet pot smaller like almost half pot sized. Then I could bet/fold.

      I initially thought of playing way ahead way behind but his bet size kinda scared me off.

      3-bet pot so bet 1/2 as standard, whether you hit or not. Gives you more space to move between bet/fold and bet/jam.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Can still CB it and also can Check/Call it once cause clearly you may even have the best hand. CBetting will just avoid him bluffing against you and CB size could easily be smaller near 60% is enough.

      Best Regards.
