      I cbet often 1/2 with nuts to bluff induce vs people who are unknown, because it works so often.

      Is it ok to call down, and never raise? I think it is easy decision not to raise especially on turn card, but on non flush? Still I think I am behind his value range with buttom set.

      would his value range include something like AJ? guess people don't c/r it too often.

      that said, he probably doesn't call that when you raise a blank turn so i think calldown is fine.
      on this one i'm not super thrilled but i guess we have to calldown since they hit pretty much the nut bluffcard ott.

      Hi GingerKid,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I don't mind your idea of inducing raises but given his bet sizing on the flop we need to raise at some point if we want to get all the money in.

      Given the fact that min raised and the Ac came down I can't see many draws in his range that would play like that so we are facing either a set (and probably no JJ given his 3-bet) or some AJ/Jx + draw type hand so I can even see a small raise there (although it would look too strong in most cases).

      But if it's a blank I don't mind raising for value against his value range which I think should include Jx hands (given your flop cbet size).
