      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: The flop I don't mind as we have the best hand and we should aim to take the pot down and gain some thin value however what's the purpose of our turn bet?

      Can we get value? Can we get better to fold?

      I need to work on my CBet's, I thought that if I was to take a stab on the flop, I should continue with a Semi-bluff as I also hit a OESD?

      But I take it that most of the time villain calls flop with 67/89/8T/TJ hands so my CBet is just a watse of $.

      I should x/c or x/f?

      Think about what a semibluff implies. It implies that we are bluffing with equity. Bluffing implies that we can make better hands to fold. In this case I don't see many better hands folding and our draw is weak as we really don't care much for our straight if a Jx comes in (although we do beat some pairs/two pairs).

      So I agree that ck/folding is probably our best bet here.
