      I raise to $1.25 preflop, and cbet for sure. He doesn't have to have a :club: or a K or J. Small pocket pair, random crap, who knows. And you often will hit this board as the pfa, especially as you have raised OOP.

      I think the turn is enough. If he doesn't have a club, he isn't calling anyway, and if he does, he still hasn't got the odds to make a call, so I like it.

      That kind of contradicts with the advice of not cbetting drawy boards ... don't you think there's better spots to cbet? Any K or high club might reraise me there and then I look kind of stupid...

      I think Aciddrop is right. It's a board that will mostly hit the preflop aggressor. I would c-bet it as well.

      I think it again depends on the type of player your opponent is. If he is someone prone to raising any board no matter what, he will definitely raise here.

      If he is somewhat more passive, he may call, or fold, depending on his hand.

      I think any single club of reasonable strength is always calling, but HU it is less likely that he will have specifically that.

      As nttflox says, this hits my range harder than it hits his. In playing the isolate the limper game, following up as often as possible is better than going passive. If they know they can call because you don't follow up, you will be up against resistance more often eventually.

      Again, this is the way I play these hands, but if there are reads available that can change things.

      raise more pre. Cbet without further reads because of playability reasons and enough foldequity. You can't call a bet on further streets, so you always give up by checking. He folds enough on that board.
