      opponent has 13/10 and agg 12, WTS of 25 with 135 hands. i guessed that he was going to be betting into me and decided to do a check-raise to take down the pot. i had some equity anyway. i thought that i should have check/fold if i didnt hit on the turn. he was likely going to show a high pocket pair or some 2pair.

      I'd rather call the flop with ~3:1 odds. As played you can't check the turn, it would look rather silly to c/r then check turn.

      Hey!


      I don't like c/r here. We're gonna get way too many calls and will be in a bad spot on the turn.

      Just go for a regular cbet! You have an OESD and that's more than enough reason to cbet. You'd rather take the pot down here, from any 2 overcards he might hold. Checking just makes the hand a lot more difficul to play and we don't really get extra value from it.


      Cheers!
