      Villain is 22/15, AF:2.0, 50h

      This hand is from while back, now I open to 3bb from CO.

      My plan is to c/c and re-evaluate the turn. I really can`t CB for value, because there are very few worse hands that would call, some broadway GS, maybe 66-TT(JJ).

      I assume villain is capable of taking the stab with worse, when I don`t c-bet.

      I think, the best line is to c/f. I don`t think villain would bet again with worse (bluff, basically).

      After he checked the turn, I think he`s got Q9-QJ, some pocket-pairs or air.
      I can`t really get any value by leading, and I think he`s very rarely bluffing the river as the hand was played out.

      Nh, hardly any value from worse, no better hand folds.
      Maybe with kq i might consider leading for value vs worse queens

      Yeah, I would definitely value-bet KQ.

      Hi guys,

      Don't we c-bet because we are OOP (and would have to fold to a turn float)?

      I'm not sure because the flop is dry, we are HU with initiative...seems like a good place for a c-bet.

      EDIT: Oh, I think I got it. Here the situation is the same as you told me, Bogdan: weaker hands do not call, stronger hands do not fold. So we play for pot control, yep? :)
