      No stats on the villain.

      My question is what should I do on the flop? I cbet this time but in the future I'm leaning more towards a check back. I suppose we could get value from AdX or KdX but these hands could easily c/r and therefore we'd have to fold.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T 7
      UTG folds, MP raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, 3 folds, MP calls $3

      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($18.75) 6 (2 players)

      Hi J10aces,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that cbetting the flop here is perfectly fine, especially against an unknown player.

      If we check back we will have to fold a lot of turn cards and give him a chance to bluff us out of the pot.

      So on the flop we bet for thin value but also don't mind to take the pot down.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, don't forget to hit the "Advise judge to take another look" button.

      Best regards,
