      Hey Straywolf,

      I think cbetting around $1.10 is a decent idea here. Generally people play pretty straightforwardly on these monotone boards. You should have a decent amount of fold-equity, plus if you get raised opponent likely has a set or flush and you can fold.

      Assuming opponent raised to $3 or something you'd technically have close to the equity needed to make a call if you saw one further card. The problem is that you suffer from reverse implied odds. Even if you do make your hand you may find yourself paying off a better hand by the river.
