      I'm trying to work on my CBet's but this spot confuses me.

      We CBet - Bluff so we need to make better hands fold - This isn't happening on this board.
      We CBet - Semi-bluff if we have some equity - do we? Do we count the A's and K's ?

      Or should I CBet here to Protect my hand against KQ/KJ/QJ hands etc?

      As played I was confident that TT+ would bet this board for protection and AA/KK would probably 4Bet Pre so am I right putting him on AK/AQ/KQs? I did this so called the turn as I can't really see that I'm behind much? The Q killed it for me though.

      Comments very much welcome on this one :f_biggrin:

      He is tight, I expect his range to mostly be pocket pairs and AQ.

      I agree with giving up on this flop a lot, but we have 2 overs and backdoor flush draw and straight draw. We can barrel a lot of cards on the Turn like a Q/J/A/K/Club. So I think betting Flop with the intention of 3barreling on Turn cards which improve our hand is probably a good plan.

      The c/c line may be good vs someone with a wide range and a ton of worse unpaired hands, but I don't think it makes too much sense here.
