      Take the minbet as a check, bet is so small compared to the pot. How would you play if he checked the flop?

      I didnt raise to this mini bet since there is CO behind.
      if he checked? I would have checked also,I used to CB with ace high in multiway pot.
      but recently,I often check and fold to CO bet. bet is better?

      Board is dry you have 2 overs so I would bet half pot to take it down. Take the minbet as a check and raise to about 1.50-1.70. I would check if board was wetter like 78T 895 etc. This board is just super dry and no one is usually calling without some kind of made hand like a pocket pair

      I don't think you are getting the game right. It's not about playing a hand differently. It's about ADJUSTING for different opponents. For example in this case, I bet because I expect CO to fold. If he is someone who calls a lot on flop I change my plan to either just giving up or betting flop and turn to take him off a hand assuming he actually folds the turn often enough after calling flop.

      However if CO was someone who calls super wide and just barrels everything ill rather c/c 3 streets to river and bluff catch A high.

      If CO was someone who folds a lot to flop cb ill throw in a cb and give up the turn because he is just always going to have a hand on the turn.

      Your move depends on your opponent more than it depends on what you have.
