      CO wins $10.22



      With such a low fold to c-bet, I figure I might save some money leaving out my c-bet in this case because either 1- villain hit the A which should be a good part of his range or 2- He'll call or re-raise with a mid+ PP. As I'm out of position, even if he decides to bluff I"ll have to fold. What do you think?

      This is a pretty tough board for your hand/opponent and I'm not sure what is best here. It depends a lot on his cold-calling range.

      Note that villain likes to stab at missed cbets besides not folding versus cbets. Therefore four options:

      1) Fire flop and fire turn. Imo if you decide to cbet air versus this guy you have to follow up with second barrel.

      2)CrAI on flop .

      3)Cbet flop c/rAI turn.

      4)c/f flop.

      I don't like your line versus such a "floaty" villain. As played I'd have to shove turn (even with doubtful FE).

      AHeart 4Club 5Diamond is a perfect board for a cbet.
      The Ace is perfectly in your range.

      I always cbet on an A-High Rainbow. If he has a low fold to cbet this means he will call a lot of hands that we can beat and if he has stats indicating a high float frequency we may even be able to get some more value out of his hands if he likes to bluff these A high boards verus our lack of aggression on later streets. The call of these floats is however very risky.

      I like both c/RAI Flop or cbet Flop & C/RAI Turn. Especially the latter since you can balance it.

      Checking the Flop makes you exploitable since any AK/AQ/AJ u will cbet and with KK-99 like, you will try to c/RAI so I am leaning towards c-Bet -> c/RAI Turn
