      Hey guys!

      vill: 29/14/2.0 after 61 hands

      I wasn't sure about Cbetting this or not I'll give my reasoning first.

      I think his range will hit this board A LOT. any Jx hands, suited connectors, any suited Asxs hand the whole lot. Now if I cbet he's gonna fold a couple of PP, but the biggest part of his range is going to either call or raise. If he raises then lives easy, but lets talk about calling.

      If he calls should I:
      a) Barrel a lot on 'good' cards? And what are even these good cards? I don't see to many nice cards. Maybe the Kh :P
      b) Just give up if I don't improve? Because I think he's not going to float me otf to often and he's going to call the turn most of the time as well. So I'd have to tripple barrel my AK here very often if I want to win the hand.

      So I thought the safest thing to do was just to c/f flop.

      ANY thought are welcome. This is a really standard spot and I bet a lot of ppl are struggling here.

      Prelfop raising is fine.

      I like check/folding the flop here. As you said his range probably hits this board pretty well and I'd expect him to call pretty wide here.
      If we go for a bet here, then we probably have to bet some turn and river cards as well. Good turn cards to me will be K, A, any spade.
