      Hi,


      He seems very aggressive postflop and you've greatly underrepresented your hand by checking the flop. Which means if he has a clue or is just mindlessly preying on weakness you have to call him down, if he's playing straight forward you'll be toast somewhat often. I think i'm calling too, people at microstakes are more prone to make big bluffs when they think you have nothing, so i don't like folding in such a spot even tho this playing seems somewhat tight and the flop crushes his range for flatting preflop.


      Hope it helps.

      Call, imo. NH. But I'm definitely cbetting the flop, heads up. There are many hands he calls with that he can't really continue with on this flop.

      I'm just wondering whether we can raise the turn - for value/information?

      Hi Tim,

      I wouldn't raise it since I'd be probably be forced to fold if he 3bets. As played at this spot (which looks like a w/a/ w/b )taking pot control line and calling seems better. This way we keep the pot small and also getting value from his air range.
