      Hi Kaitz20!

      I would play bet/fold here. On the one hand you want to get value and on the other hand you don't want to lose too much money. But since you are headsup it is not very likely that your opponent has a higher :spade: . I think bet/fold is the best play to achieve these two goals.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Its very likely that your opponent has missed the flop since he limped first in from CO. It might be a good option to bet the flop as a bluff. Standard line from alaton for low limits in HU where you get a free play in BB was to bet any flop for half pot which only had to work 1 out of 3 times to break even.
