      Hero bets $4,75, MP1 raises to $18,50, Hero ???

      He made more than a pot size c-bet, that made me tought, that he has a strong made hand, that he wants to protect from straight draw maybe,
      I checked on the turn, planning to check-raise him, that was probably wrong, but hes check behind made me tought, that he doesn't have an ace,
      hes 2-bet on the river makes only sense to me, if he had KK,

      can i or suppose i find 'fold' here, or is it shove?

      usualy i lead on this kind of flop if i am not sure that the PFR will bet
      if i feel he bets check/raise is good
      check calling and check/raising turn is fine also but a lot of times he will check behind one pair hands so i prefer going for the check/raise on the flop because they cant let go an ace and will stack off
      as played i would bet more on the river . smth like 5.5 and of course call a shove every time

      Hi Tuuletallaja,

      As srohack said, it's better to lead out on this kind of flop, unless I'm pretty sure the PFR will c-bet. But I don't like going for a check/raise on the flop, IMO a lot of players are able to fold an Ace against a check/raise on the flop, therefore I like the check/call.

      On the turn I'm leading out though, the board is too dry, it's very unlikely he will bet on the turn again with just an Ace, but I doubt he will let it go if you bet.

      As played, I'm also betting more on the river and then shoving. I think he played this hand in a very strange way, he could be making some strange bluff, he could have KK or he could have overplayed AK (and that's much more likely than KK).
