      Yeah don't think he's going to be folding anything. If you want to bet again, it's better to do it on the turn. Your fold equity increases since CO also has to fear a river bet. But wouldn't do this vs random player.

      Hi,


      Don't bet/check/bet as a bluff, unknowns will seldom buy that line, same goes for tags actually. Like johnbeattie85 said, if you want to barrel bet the turn. On such an innocuous board you likely don't have much fold equity against an unknown so i wouldn't try it.

      On the flop i'd bet a tad bigger just so that it doesn't look so cheap.


      Hope it helps.
