      Hey Cuvash,

      It's fine to not cbet the 9:s6:dJ flop. You don't really connect with it, and it's a pretty drawy texture.

      I would only cbet if villain had been folding a ton to cbets. Most of the time I'd just check/fold flop.

      What is draw texture?

      Hey Cuvash,

      I typoed and meant "drawy texture". I fixed it now.

      Texture really refers to whether there are many draws available.

      So, in this case there are quite a few straight draws and flush-draws villain can have. Hands like 78 or QT for a straight draw, any two 's for a flush draw.

      On a board like this which has a "drawy texture", you are going to find that players fold less to continuation bets, so it's fine not to bet with your AK here.
