      Hello

      So I decide to try and steal the pot preflop because of the dead money in it, and my hand plays better heads up so I actually don't mind a caller but in hindsight I dont actually think I'm getting called by many worse hands here.

      Given villians stack size vs the pot and since I only have a weak draw on the flop should I just give up or contibet/bluff?

      Thanks

      Hey K,

      Why do you raise to 10bb? I think preflop you should just check with so many people already involved, you end up with many callers OOP. CO is also with an awkward stack, either raise to like 7bb or just check. I think checking is best.

      I don't really have a good answer for the bet sizing. I guess I figured because everyone in the hand had posted a blind and was not a limper I could take the pot down with such a bet.... 7BB probably achieves the same result.

      As played, should I check/fold flop or continue with the bluff?

      CO has like 43bb left and you'd bet about 13bb so cbetting as a bluff is possible and probably best play with your gutshot but overall this won't be the highest EV because of preflop imo.

      You're heads up and this flop hits your 10BB raising range quite a lot, plus you have a gutshot so I'd say cbet it.
      Also, if he's calling with a flushdraw he'll often has no pair and then we're actually valuebetting, or am I wrong here?
