      Hello JHTAN,

      Don't really get the point of your float on the flop. Could you explain me that?

      Best Regards.

      Hi veriz,

      I guess people always cbet this Flop as preflop aggressor.
      I may represent Kx and I will bet if villain checks to me on Turn.

      I think I would 3B preflop in position verse what looks like a steal.

      As played, I would either fold the flop or call, planning to raise the turn with a bluff.

      Well, but major of his range also hits there? Isn't it so? :) By calling you rare rarely representing much and he practically can you just double-barrel off or Call off with weaker holdings even.

      so, do you think call preflop is good?
      do we play fit or fold postflop if we call preflop?

      TY

      Call preflop is fine IF we play aggressive. Playing fit or fold will lose us a lot of money and instead you should 3-bet or fold the hand preflop.

      Otherwise we can play aggressive and float and/or raise a lot of boards (even this board is ok to raise with our backdoor equity and considering how many of his hands miss this board).
