      What should we do here unimproved? Just give up, or barrel to fold out 99-JJ? I usually barrel only spades here as bluff.

      yeah, prefer to just give up there.

      as a general gameplan i like something like firing one more on broadways (to fold his midpairs, also we turn a gs) and two more if we turn a spade (to rep teh nutz QQ+) :f_biggrin:

      A/K are quite interesting cards... i might just go for one more street, not really thrilled about stacking off when we might be super easily "reverse dominated" by AQ/KQ.

      on a "this opponent" basis - is he really that positionally unaware and folding just 3% to 3bets? that's fucking crazy. :f_biggrin:
      guess you can even argue for still going for 2 streets unimproved, lol (and by that i mean c/c turn or c/c right from the flop)

      Generally I don't like cbetting QXX boards as the 3better since typical calling ranges include AQ/KQs/mid pocket pairs.

      Here you have 2 overs + backdoor FD so I think betting is better than checking. I largely agree with Tomaloc, I would give up unimproved
