      Hi,

      on this dry flop you can think about slowplaying flop.
      About your betting size: Would you bet that amout against two villains with air, too?
      If your answer is NO then make a normal continuation bet (~2/3 pot ~3.25-3.50$), to remain unreadable.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      you can c/r there, although likely any hand that would often bet on that flop himself would call one bet, so I think you can also bet out yourself

      ...yes, that betsize is off. I must have made a mistake in game. usually i'm firing 50-70% potsize with air there. oops. I certainly didn't do it to be cute.
