      is checking better than making a cbet here?

      I was planning on betting again if a highcard cam on the turn, as he would call the flop with a lot of pps, and fold on the turn. Or should I just give up?

      Most times I don't conti bet such low flops because your most probable range is overcards and this is exploitable by agressive opponents. Besides, we are OOP.

      Hi Kruppe,

      I'd check the flop, it's too low, connected, flushy, we can't represente anything but overpairs and we are OOP. IP I'd c-bet though.

      Betting on the turn if a high card falls is really opposition dependent, if you think villain is able to lay down a pair with one overcard on the board, go ahead, if not, just give up.
