      "Any reason not to bet and try to go broke here?"

      3 Reasons:
      Ac
      Qc
      Jc

      I'll check behind. I dont think the free card can hurt us. If he had 2pair or a set on the flop then he would have c/r. If we bet then only a better flush will call us. BASICALLY WAWB.

      On the riverI'll make a thin value bet if he checks hoping that Kx will call or I'll call a bet if he leads out.

      The Best river for us would be Ac if villian has a low PFR or the Qc if villian has a high PFR. If villian has a high PFR then it is unlikely that he has Ac in his hand.

      "3 Reasons: Ac Qc Jc" - Thank you captain obvious. :)

      anyway, agree with your reasoning that the check behind can't hurt us.

      Hey elhh82,

      on this flop I certainly make a bigger c-bet of 3$.

      On the turn I like the check behind with 2/3 pot size left, because only bet that makes sense is a shove which will usually result in being called only with better flushes. On the river, it's close between c/c and c/f. Here it would be nice to have some reads, but in general I don't think villain will raise here worse or bluff too often unless he likes to bluff a lot thus I would pick c/f on the river against unknown.

      Regards,

      True.

      By c/c and c/f I meant to say we should check behind when villain checks, but it's close between call and fold when he bets.
