      Stack to pot ratio is 3 so you can't fold on this type of board.

      Depending on the player, he could raise something like JTcc or some other kind of monster draw, maybe 2 pair or set of QQ or 66, and maybe some bluff.


      If your opponent is a little retarded, he could make it as a bluff.

      I think i call to let him bluff and put the rest of the money on the turn.

      Hi,


      I'm not a fan of those "you can't fold" rules really. The fact is when most players start raising your c-bet on boards that so obviously crush your range, you're either up against hands that have you drawing close to dead or very strong combo draws that you're flipping with anyway. I'm 100% felting the hand if villain calls down, but when he raises the flop if he's known to be tight I just don't care about my pot/stack ratio, there aren't enough draws to make up for the times I'm so obviously behind.

      If you don't know villain it's fine to go broke by default, but since I don't expect them to be pure bluffing on AQx often at all, I'd just jam the flop to get all-in against worse hands right away. It'll prevent them from checking back blank turns or something if they have draws.


      Hope it helps.
