      FLOP
      This guy has been somewhat playing back at me (or hitting a lot) for the past couple of hands and I've been folding a ton.
      Would it make sense to just give up this flop? His 3bet calling range will have a lot of PPs and I doubt he would bluff with a hand like AQ or KQ.

      He does not look like someone that would play back at you. People who play back are usually looser like 25/22 so I guess he probably just hit alot.

      Flop.. this flop is dry and I woule bet at it 100% of the time. I expect him to be folding alot and I dont think hes raising here with Jx so if he raises and you think hes playing back alot we could make a re raise or call and check jam turn or call and bet turn.

      Hi cutegoldfish

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      And what would be the plan if he calls the flop and the turn is a blank? I would assume we barrel on any T, Q, K or A, right?

      this board is a little different, the usual boards where i barrel scare cards is when i expect them to have a wider range. on this board their range for calling is narrow, likely overcards and pocket pairs so i dont think we have much value if we hit so ill check/call to bluffcatch on K and A and barrel TQ as a bluff against lower pocket pairs.
