      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $15.94 (31.9 bb)
      Hero (BB): $100.67 (201.3 bb)
      UTG: $58.01 (116 bb)
      MP: $51.53 (103.1 bb)
      CO: $29.27 (58.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J J
      2 folds, CO calls $0.50, BTN raises to $2, SB folds, Hero raises to $6, CO folds, BTN calls $4

      Flop: ($12.75) 3 6 K (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, BTN folds


      My postflop plan was to cbet small on the flop, so that I make easier for him to float me with a wide range (pockets, Ax, even air like QJs), and then ch/call turn vs this range. I didnt want to check flop right away, cause
      1. I would make pretty obvious what I have.
      2. I would cbet this board with most of my air hands.
      3. I could lose value comparing to the line above.

      What do you think?

      Preflop: I prefer flatting here, if CO is a big fish.

      Flop: While I agree with your reasoning vs a tough player, this guy is just a straight forward TAG, playing 21/16. He folds 70% to cbets, so even when you bet small, I think he folds TT 99 here anyway. So you are mostly just betting to take down the dead money in the pot and betting for protection.

      I think you should just check the Flop, I doubt he's good enough to 3barrel you as a bluff.
