      Betting flop is fine to protect our equity. Betting turn doesn't make sense unless you're planning on turning into bluff by betting river too. I would chk back turn and evaluate river, probably folding if he bets.

      Hi Lunitis,

      While he folds a lot after he skips a cbet i think that he will most likely play a lot more check call in a BvB scenario. Since he only minraised preflop I think his range is really wide and his line looks like a "pot control" line where he probably has a weaker pair that will rarely ever fold even to 3-barrels.

      So with that being said I'd try to check it down after the flop because I doubt we have value in bets. One line we can toy with if he proves to be a guy that ck/calls 3-streets for pot control is to take away his pot control by betting a lot larger and using overbets. However we'd have to do that with both value and bluffs and our bluffs should at least have more equity (like backdoors).
