      I would expect a bet if they hit the flop and a made straight doesn't make sense on the turn. I figure them to be on a draw or just over cards.

      Hi,


      Safe, standard line against an unknown. Against some players you'll notice they c-bet air/good hands on that flop always, so when they check to you on the flop and bet the turn they'll only show up with TPNK/88-JJ stuff that they're pot-controlling then valuebetting.


      Hope it helps.
