      Hi there,

      Here you can stick to the standard bet/fold imo. Without any particular reads, why would you call his ch/R?

      As he called preflop and didn't raise, I put him on maybe a high ace... And the the reraise for some reason just made me think Bluff.... Was honestly expecting a split pot here, but this is what I get for playing unknowns with extra thought.


      Looking at it now, it looks dumb as hell I admit it :(

      I'll go spank myself until I am red raw as punishment :(

      I just B/F Flop here. SB can easily be making a move with a Monster in this spot knowing you're cbetting 100% of Flops. He can of course just have a set 77+ or straight draw+ Pair as well as of course A6x in which case you're still drawing thin.

      I still lay down. There is no reason to think an unknown is bluffing in this spot.

      Hello

      Did someone posted a blind preflop or are you raising normally to 5bb?

      As played, You get 2.4:1 and thus need 8 outs to be profitable if you are facing any pair.

      I just bet/fold this one , you are mostly gambling whether he has you beat or not.

      Sorry for the inconvenience,
      Gerv
