      Anon. table. 20/17 for a small sample.

      How would you play the hand? Betting on the flop doesn`t accomplish much, but when i check, he could barrel me. I have also most Ahxh hands in that spot, but still my range is weak.

      Hey AchillesBG,

      Check flop is fine, but sometimes betting with the intention of check/calling turn is still decent vs opponents with low FtFcbet.

      Generally vs most guys you should play check/call flop check/fold turn with this type of hand.

      Turn call probably ok when you pick up the gutshot + FD but still pretty borderline when your outs are tainted. You could think about c/r bluff.

      Nothing to do on river but check-fold imo.
