      Villain had a 100% Cbet over a small hand sample (less than 50).

      My plan was to float the flop and bluff the turn if he checked or fold in case I didnt improve and he raised.

      Can I ever be folding there on turn or river?

      Except AJ and AT which beat me I am still ahead of AK and a lot of other Ax hands as well of QQ or TT.

      At the time I made the call It made sense to me even though I am not sure whether the whole play is +Ev

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: With our hand and one more player behind I would simply fold this flop. Why are we calling?

      Turn: As played what do we beat on the river besides a bluff? Flush got there and so did a straight.

      Do you see a worse A betting?
