      villain is completely unknown
      Obviously conti-bet with Ace on the board is pretty standard. And you have to protect against K-T and a diamond coming up on the board. But it seems like a pure bluff when the ace is there..

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.5/$1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $77.35
      CO:
      $23.50
      BU:
      $62.90
      SB(Hero):
      $19.00
      BB:
      $101.50
      UTG2:
      $55.10
      MP1:
      $153.10
      MP2:
      $95.00

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, T.
      3 folds, MP3 calls $1.00, 2 folds, Hero raises to $5, BB folds, MP3 calls $4.00.

      Flop: ($11.00) 6, A, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.00, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $11.00.

      Villain will allways fold his hand to this cbet, in case he doesn't have an ace or he is a fish :)

      Hey WildBeans,

      nice and standard. Of course, c-bet when you don't hit a made hand on the flop is a bluff bet/information bet, but your goal here is to win the pot from any non Ax hand. You don't want to give up the hand just because A is on the board, because many times your hand will still be the best on the flop even without the A.

      So, checking would scream "I don't have the ace, please bluff me out of the hand" and that's what you don't want to do. ;)

      I hope this makes sense.

      Regards,
