      On turn I would scream "NOOO!!!" if I were you :)

      In other words, do not slowplay here because we don't want to see:
      a) spade
      b) ace

      Especially with his cold-call %, he must have either a pocket pair or some suited aces/connectors. You should be really careful with the second group.

      It's very nice that he was betting himself, and apparently he happened not to have a flush, but it won't always be the case.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Why not ck/raise the flop for pure value? There's plenty of worse that can go with the hand there.

      How standard is a ch.r OTF by the PFR btw? It sure doesnt seem like a bluff, I'd just CBET if I wanted to bluff. :P

      I ch.r only for value against aggressive opponents. Just as you, I don't see why would someone do this for bluff :f_biggrin:

      It might be used on higher stakes for deception and stuff. Because if you only check/fold, you gonna be exploited.

      Standard is bet/bet/bet however with information we can change our standard. So here you assume that villain can bet wide and a small ck/raise can do wonders.

      I may have a leak. I find it hard to bet these flops for value. WTF could call us?

      We bet to get dead money vs A-high?
      Value vs Tx?
      I mean, it's so fu--in dry, what could call us??

      And a check-reise just scares away everything. Dunno, I find it really hard to imagine, what could call here... Middle PPs?

      Look at the board, pairs and draws can call you, some floats, people can raise as a bluff (because you don't rep much), etc. so tons of value from that.

      Equilab your hand vs a range on this board and look at a range distribution.

      Add the fact that he has position and you add more floats to his range from which you get immediate value (and some protection).
