      BU stats 28/17 AF:1,8 fold to F cbet:33(3) after 53 hands.

      I really get some trouble playing w middle pairs, especially vs opponents, who I don't know very well.

      On flop we have two options:

      1) b/f. So if we bet F and T is a heart, A, 8, 9 I think it's pretty easy x/f. But if turn is completely blank like 2 of clubs I really don't know that should I do, because there is not much value in betting and if we x, he will probably bet, then we can call, but it will be hard to play river w middle pair and without initiative and position, he can bluff a lot, because we don't rep K.

      2) x/c. We x/c F and he bets on blank T again, I think then we have too call and fold OTR if he bets again. Now T comes heart, A, 8, 9, hands, which I think helps his range( of course A,9,8 gives me a little bit of equity too) and he bets, I think in this spot we have to fold.


      Which line would you take on flop? How would you play on later streets?

      Hi.

      Def cc and i dont think its close. At least w AT u could make an argument for bet f cc T.

      If u find that villain is often putting a ton of pressure on u, just start checking stronger hands and pair plus draws.
