      villain seems to be some kind of an avg reg

      28/20/7 AF:3,1, ftcb:63, fold to turn bet:0/3, wtsd:22

      i think if he calls flop here he either has a slowplayed set or some kind of suited connector that made 1 pair (he has a lot of SC's imo given his big VPIP/PFR gap) i barrel turn to make him fold those... once he raises im pretty sure he has a set so i just give up obv.... dunno if he turns some middle pair into bluff, but even if so, i have A high :D

      Hi.

      I don't think barreling on a pure blank is a good idea. He folds 0 out of 3 times vs turn bets which is a good indication that you probably need 3 barrels.

      We either want to have a turn which improves our equity or can potentially scare him out with his pair. He probably has at least top pair here IMO, given the 3way dynamic on the Flop, unless you are perceived to be cbetting super wide on the Flop.

      Thanks.

      what do you think about xb and fold on the T?

      yeah thats a good option, although if u always play fit/fold in mutiway pots, ur gonna get kinda exploited imo....

      and here u got position, aggression, villains are unlikey to hit much here and u got some added backdoor + pair equity...

      wondering what mbml says though

      I don't mind playing more straightforward here and just check/folding Flop.

      Cbetting is also reasonable when we have the backdoor flush draw + 2 overs. I think this is a decent hand to cbet Flop with and fire turns which are good (diamonds or high cards). I don't like firing on blanks though.

      But I am not cbetting AKo, only AK with BDFD.
