      So you raised preflop with like AQ and flop comes 249 rainbow... what do you do? Do you c-bet, checkraise...?

      If you raised preflop and you have like Q9s, no chance of a flush on the board and flop is like A58?

      If you limped preflop and didn't hit anything, you check/fold, if you hit a flush/straight draw, you check/call?

      It's Cbet on such board with AQ 95% of the time (unless it's 5+ handed and you are not last to act). You have to call c/r with your overcards...

      How many players postflop?
      3-handed: no-brainer cbet
      4-handed: usually check behind, but if they play weak tight and/or you have very goood table image, it's sometimes worth to cbet because if noone has Ace, it's not so complicated fold for some players
      5+ handed: always check

      This very depend on number of players and you position. For example: you'd like to see capped flop with flush draw (only if you have suited hole cards ofc - not 1 card to flush unless it's Ace) if it's 3+ handed because you have around 35% equity on the flop. The same applies to OESD but I would look for 4+ handed situations and rainbow flop.
      ^ it's bet/raise for you

      otherwise, you should play according to your odds/outs

      Even if you don't hit anything, your overcards have up to 6 outs, your bottom pair has still 5 outs to improve to 2-pair or trips, so it's worth 1 small bet in multiway pot often.
