      Hero???

      villain is 30/30 over 10 hands so not really a sample. playing zoom so no other info...

      should i cbet this flop? if yes, then what weaker hands do i get value from? how should i play later streets? if no, then are we simply check/folding here? it seems too weak, so if we check/call then what is our plan for later streets?

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: The board hits our perceived range and we have 0 info on the guy so I much rather bet/fold than ck/fold or ck/call with no info. We would bet to scoop up the pot.

      If we get called we can let go of the hand.

      ok so we try to make him fold hands like TT/99, KTs, QTs, KQs etc., and we bet to win the pot directly and avoid playing guessing games rather than for the typical value/bluff? because this can't be a value bet since it is likely even Jx will fold here, and it can't be a bluff because he can have 0 better hands that will fold.

      We would bet to scoop up the pot.

      i never know when to use this sort of reasoning to make a bet.
