      No. Super standard. You have really good equity and will get lots of folds.

      Hi,


      Since he c-bet so small on a board where he shouldn't be confident betting small with a made hand, your play is fine. However if that 13/9/3 guy came out betting like $0.8 i'd say our fold equity would be drastically reduced, maybe even non-existent. That doesn't mean shoving 2 overs and a flushdraw would be bad since we're still nearly flipping with most of his range, we should expect to run into an overpair/set a lot more often.


      Hope it helps.
