      Hey, on flop I cbet cause so far he has got big call open and he has hands more hands that can fold on this board than standard reg. On Turn he would probably throw away 66, 77 and A high to my bet, but I dont know how many A highs I should assing to his Flop calling range, so I gave up.
      On what range of hands would you put him when he calls Flop?

      Hi sandraardnas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: i wouldn't cbet the flop if you plan to just give up on the turn. Given we cbet on the smaller side I can see a lot of hands in his calling range (on the flop) even though you opened in EP. So probably some big cards and pairs.

      On the turn you can barrel to put pressure on pairs and overcards and we can bet big rivers too.
