      Hi Mugge88!

      In this hand you are way ahead or way behind. He calls your flopbet. That means he has either a weaker king, a pocket pair or a 6. There are no draws possible. Because of this I would just play check/call on the turn. This way you get the most out of worse hands (small pocket pairs) and lose the minimum against better hands (trips 6). Also on the river check/call is the best line in a way ahead/way behind situation.

      Good luck at the tables!
