      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      Hero (BTN): $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $10.67 (106.7 bb)
      BB: $9.98 (99.8 bb)
      MP: $10.68 (106.8 bb)
      CO: $15.86 (158.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 2 A
      MP folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, CO calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.95) T A K (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.95) 7 (2 players)
      CO bets $0.95, Hero calls $0.95

      River: ($2.85) 7 (2 players)
      CO bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40

      Went through this hand few times in my mind.
      I took a bit guessing line. And bluffcatching with my monster kicker is serious.

      I guess you would prefer bet flop and if called then give up, right?

      Hello Gasheks,

      Preflop: looks fine IP

      Postflop: We do prefer to bet the flop for pure value and protection. The problem with checking and calling down is that we are indeed guessing and we don't know if villain is capable of bluffing or valuebettting worse.

      Plus by not betting flop you are losing tons of value.

      On boards like this I bet/fold flop/turn versus fish, and ck back the river.
