      No Idea. I normally give up after getting called on A high flops. I think villain shows up with A too often to 2nd barrel. not to mention you have bit of SD value so if you're lucky you might get there and win the hand if he's passive.

      I think, although the villain's check is a little weak, that we do better to check behind. No Ace is folding on the turn, here so it's only draws that can maybe fold to the second barrel.

      I saw myself kinda committed and he's line seems like monster or low PP (that he didn't want to fold to first bet), maybe even a queen with bad kicker, heck even KQ which would make sense for his preflop call, or flush draw. Given the board is starting to get drawy I don't think he would slowplay the turn with a monster.

      Hey RahXephon1,

      against unknown on A-high board it's best to just give up the hand if opponent doesn't fold to c-bet. He will too often show you an A. And if he doesn't have an A he will rarely bet out himself thus you will see free showdown and maybe win the hand anyway. However, if villain bets after you miss c-bet I give credit for A to unknown.

      Regards,

      I would fold to his bet on the turn, but since he didn't bet on such board on the turn I didn't give him credit for an ace anymore.
