      call vs loose UTG 3bb opener in BB w AJs, c/c Q9x w BDFD, check 9, donk blank river - 1/2 - BLUFER

      My fold looks weak. He might have some weak hand. But is bluffcatching light, so I am not fan of raising on this board especitally. If I call, I can beat Qx hands, Kx which not a pair I mean, but ther can be weak PPs as well like 77, so he will not fold them on river unless I overbet maybe.

      i think flop is a CB for the following reasons

      1. he folds to flop CB a fair amount which is 50%, not too much and not too little but profitable enough for us to fire a half pot CB, which only needs to work 33% of the time

      2. if we check back he is usually going to fire the turn and that takes away our equity in the pot.

      while i dont mind raising the turn i think we are not representing much and he might call us and we may have to bet the river again to take him off a weak hand. or we could float but i expect him to bet the river again as a bluff and we are left with a guessing game.

      since we can see that when we check back the flop we get into difficult spots, i would rather bet the flop myself.

      I don't believe that he will fold even those 33% to a half pot bet on such board. It really will look like a bluff. We then might need to barrel turn and river to rep strong hand I think.
