      I think we are best to check here. Villain’s range is quite wide and he’s calling with a lot of draws, weak pairs or overcards.

      Well I don't like checking here, because we don't give him free card - he has a lot of draws, so I would prefer quite big cbet and don't think that villain will raise us often, because with big cbet on flop like this we rep a strong hand. Cbet is gooda for value, protection and we can re-evaluate OTT, but we can bet on some 2,3,4,7,9,A and otherwise just check.

      I would cbet the flop. BB range should be fairly wide, we wanna deny some equity. 2nd pair TK should do it imo. So I would cbet OTF and then proceed OTT from there. Also ppl in general don´t xr enough, so you don´t really need to protect your x range.

      +1

      Just take a look on his fold-to-cbet percentage. If he ever folded some hands OTF just fire out a cbet.

      You have a decent sample of him and if he folds a lot of Cbets it’s a no brainer Cbet for me.

      He has many draws and broadways. If we check, OTT often ovecard comes and our hand is wasted.
      The c-bet is here more likely for stab the pot I think. OTF I would do the c-bet with many others hands (like KhJx e.x.).
