      Hey,

      Bet flop, no question. How does hitting the flush help you vs your opponent's range? Think about it.. If he has a hand like KJ, a flush only scares him.. same with QQ, JJ, KQ. Don't play to win POTS or make HANDS, always play FOR EV! You miss out on huge value by not betting the flop here.

      thank you I will bet on the flop.
      and will you tell me what kind of call range he can have?
      only hands I could imagine are JJ,AQ,AK,TT
      is there any other hands?

      His cold calling range will usually be something like 77-JJ and suited broadways JTs-AQs, maybe some KJs, AJs too, AQo, T9s from time to time. If he is a bit ambitious he'll have KQo and AJo as well but I would exclude those without a read that he is quite fishy.
