      Wasn't sure how I should be playing flop / turn here.

      What should be the plan, and how would it change with different turn cards?

      Its just feels painful at times OOP with a marginal hand, I could be good on the turn - he could have a flush draw, but it isn't ideal when both kx & 8x are beating me.

      Hi PhilFox,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I prefer to bet/fold the flop because checking means that we are almost always giving up versus unknown.

      And with a bet we have some value versus draws, 8x, some 7x, 99.

      As played we can go for ck/call or ck/fold if we don't really know how often villain floats (or we don't expect him to float often). I would only bet/fold there if villain is a big station. And we can expect most worse hands (minus some flushes) to check back.
