      Does it make hand to make a dominated hand fold? They have so little equity against me, this is just bad luck. I mean, should I risk money on the turn to make air fold?...

      Hello,

      What do you think about 3betting preflop? How much he folds against 3bet?

      On the flop checking with the intention to check/fold is fine.

      Turn doesn't improve our hand, we have decent SD value, so checking is a good option.

      I'm check/folding here on the river. I doubt that this is a bluff here plus I don't think he would value bet something like A9 or so..

      Best,

      So, would you be more inclined to bet with e.g. Q or Jh hands OTT?

      Yeah, Q high and J high have quite smaller showdown value, so if we expect him to fold Ax hands we should definitely consider barreling there.

      In this situation though, the guy cbets 79% of the times, so I would expect him rarely to check with the intention to fold (especially on this dry board) so even with J/Q high hands I would rather check and not value bet myself there.
