      Preflop: standard

      Flop: Cbet is standard i think. After he raises i thought that there are not many 8s in his range and JJ is also very rare. Mostly i put him on a combodraw, also overcards with flush draw and then i wanted to get it in.
      His cbet raise was 33(6). Not telling much but he has done it before. Is it good to get it in there?
      Would we think about calling the flop raise, we are IP and can see the turn card and his action and decide our decision on turn. or is folding there also option?

      Re raising his raise only isolates you against the strongest hands of his range like the 8 or full house which he probably is going to show you.

      If we have reason to think he's bluffing with a wide range I think we can call and then let him barrel turn and rivers and bluffcatch him. We probably get more value this way from the majority of his range which we can expect to be draws.

      Hello!


      VS unknowns rather fold the flop? Mostly peoples don`t X/R draws, especially on a paired flop.

      This flop is pretty dry, and he is not representing much other than the 8. With tptk I guess I'll bluffcatch the flop and turn and fold to river bets. I expect them to have pretty little on this board but they usually pull only 2 streets of bluff. If they also bet the river usually it's trips but it doesn't happen so often.

      I would probably still fold on the flop, because I can`t expect too many bluffs on these micro limits.

      Average unknown still is rather passive.

      Folding the flop is fine too. Even if I'm right I don't see bluffcatching as being much superior to folding. If they are that passive in your games I think folding directly is good too since they almost always have the trips or better.
