      Hero wins 24.66 BB

      he cbets 71% flop, 100% turn, river 0%.
      I saw him barreling few times with air.

      I think I should fold flop, and not try to float vs someone who bets turn even If I think I am folding the better hand?

      Is bluff raise here too bad? I have only outs for fd, which is dominated sometimes, and I expect him to barrel on this scare card and fold PP or air.

      Hi GK,

      If your hand is too weak to handle barrels but you can make him fold, raise the flop imo.. you still have 2 outs, so it's better than nothing plus it's easy to respond to a 3bet.

      I would raise a polarised range on the flop and call good equity hands to be able to handle the second barrel he fires so often. As played, it seems a bit spewy since your hand is basically air. You do represent a flush but I'd rather make this play with like AJhh, AJ with a diamond that floats flop, 89s without diamonds.. just smth with a bit more equity that still has a tough time calling.
