      Nice hand, well played.

      If he shows resistance and check-raises I'd fold on the flop. If he just calls I am still done with the hand and I check/fold on turn except if a K pops up.

      cBet $0.7, $0.47 is way too less in my opinion that's just 1/3rd of the pot!

      Best regards,

      Ok. I guess I was afraid of being reraised, since there was an ace on the flop. I was like betting what I thought was the minimum amount, since I'd be folding to a check/raise most of the time.

      If I bet 0.7$, and the guy goes all-in, should I fold?

      thank you


      Edit:

      I guess it was answered ont first reply. Anyway, could you confirm that position, Gerv?

      Your going to have a Ace here over 50% of the time.

      You can represent that easily, also its quite a good flop for a c bet. Like Gerv mentioned you should make your c bet bigger. Your smaller c bet could convince the villian that your weak and he might call and bet if you check the turn. You will probably check the turn and lose the pot then :p

      If you want to bet under 50% do it with AA/KK hands on dry flops vs fish :f_biggrin:

      It would be very different in multiway pot though, i would check/fold then 98% of the time.

      What will he raise your cBet with on such a dry A-high board? Nothing but an Ace --> Your equity is therefore around 10%

      Therefore you play cBet/Fold ;)
