      Hero (SB): 108.68 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 6:club: A:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6 BB, 2 players) J:spade: Q:club: 6:diamond:


      I was wondering whats the optimal game plan w/ our hand on this flop BvB.

      I think its too weak to x/call and too strong to x/fold.

      So turning it into a bluff seems OK to me and I was torn between betting out and barreling or x/raising the flop.

      I kinda like x/r flop cos I will be checking this flop quite often and I want some check - defending range.
      It should also play fine when I get 3bet on the flop or raised later on the turn cos I can easily let go unimproved.

      Your thoughts?

      Hey D,

      If he folds often to cbets I prefer just betting.

      C/r is also a good option. You make him put in some dead money (only then you would actually check) and you can also barrel on a few runouts. The next thing favourable for you is that he doesn't have JJ+ in his range in this spot imo so he has 6 fewer nut combos in his range than you.
