      Hi I would still c-bet.

      The reason is because he raised a limper and hence his raising range is bigger then usual.

      C-betting here for a pot control bet (b/f line) will get him to just call with like JJ or so if he has that, giving us a card without him knowing if he is beat or not. Hence if K or A turn comes its good for us.

      He might also be holding something like AQ etc. here which he might fold.

      This is actually a tough one because MP3 is a loose monkey who could play naerly anything at all preflop for $3, and probably go broke here with any ten, much less JJ.


      I think we can reasonably do either of cbet-fold or check-fold against such a player. I dont think such a player is poker-aware enough to understand that our preflop raise represents AKo+, QQ+ and that he should be afraid of QQ-AA.

      Hello,

      Kinda interesting spot, as we have only 31 hands here. Seems like a loose opponent and I think he will Call your CBet so Check/Fold is definitely fine in such situation and also I like it more than Bet/Fold, against such opponents just wait for a hand and let them pay you off, don't try to overplay them. But I am not saying that Bet/Fold is a mistake here, it's thinkable.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
