      Hey guys!

      Villain:
      Unknown (50/0/4h). 1 tabler!

      Flop:
      I think going for a CB is best here but I'm doubting now because it seems like a get check/raised really often in those spots after isolating fish. I'm not sure wheter this is just variance.

      What is the correct thought process?

      'I can make him fold some EQ shares, I build the pot for ones I hit the turn and this way we can see a free rivercard.'

      This is my thought process. Correct? More reasons? :)

      Okay cool!

      You check back because you expect most fishes to be passive? And thus not stabbing..

      I check simply bcos no worse hands call and no better hands fold.

      Then i think fishes bluff pstflop ina predictablr manner, allowing me to make very good decisions in position w only turn and river left.

      It depends on his sizing I presume. On some turns vs small sizings we can call, whereas vs other sizings it's better to fold.

      I would probably cbet AK without a heart anyway though. I feel like they have a lot of PPs, SCs and Axs in their ranges when they limp/call like that preflop and I prefer to take it down on the flop. Like you said we fold out equity and keep initiative in the pot, he shouldn't have hit the queen very often so I think it should be fine.
