      Hey

      I'm still not sure which spots are fine for delayed cbet. I think it's best when we have little equity on flops and flops where we can check behind decent hands (here Qx). Or isn't this a good spot because maybe he doesn't fold PP's vs delayed cbets or Khi?

      He was unknown

      I think it's a good spot. We can check behind all Ax/Qx/PPs on this board, and after he checks twice it's more likely that he doesnt have anything, and we can make him fold his better J/K high hands.

      I think this is a 100% cb spot against unknown. I don't think he's continuing anything other than Ax or Qx here. Even KJ with gutshot should not call and lower pockets would fold too.

      I prefer delayed cb on spots that are likely to hit his range and we have nothing and he's likely to check raise For example we 22 on 789 flop

      To me it seems like we can still have decent hand if we check this flop but if we check 89T is seems like we're giving up?

      I think we can check this flop with a hand like Qx or A2 for bluff catch. But if we check 9T we can't call if he bets on the turn and also a raise looks super bluffy to him.

      And yes we are checking on 789 to give up but if he checks twice then we can stab on the turn and river.
