      I didn't know if I should c/c or b/f here. I think I can get value from JJ and AJ and maybe some draws. I think my hand is too weak to go broke, on this particular board, even in a 3bet pot.

      What do we do if the board is Ah6c2s for example?

      Hey Riverdiver,

      Hand looks good.

      Would definitely bet flop here. Vs most guys the fold-vs-raise is totally fine since they will flat most weaker hands and raise with stuff like AT/A9/AK/sets.

      Once you have reads you might decide to go broke in this spot.

      On a dry board like A62 rainbow, you could think about setting a trap and check/calling. You could also think about cbetting flop to extract value from floats and then checking the turn as a trap.
