      This is a very nasty flop to bluff on. I would probably check/fold. There is not a single card that would represent me having a good hand playing SSS ( maybe only a set of 8 )

      Hi,

      These flops are bad for c-betting. Just c/f until your hand improves.

      Yes you could represent a PP, but villain will mostly never fold if he is holding a PP.

      Yes villain is never folding a pocket pair, overpair or top pair here. Also on this flop he is probably not folding AK, AQ either. Just check fold unimproved I think. It could be different with AK since you would still have some outs + some showdown value.

      Hey elhh82,

      given the fact villain is completely unknown I would still like to make 1.5$ c-bet and give up to any action, since we don't know how wide his range is or how aggressive he is. But I also think c/f unimproved is certainly an option, as villain will not fold any better hand here, however there's a chance he bluffs us off the hand with something even worse if we don't bet the flop. So, any stats would be great, to see at least what range are we dealing with.

      Regards,
