      I get this situation pretty often and its always tricky for me : I have a good pocket , a fish who is midstacked calls me , and the flop brings a high card. (Not an ace because that would make it a bit easier). How to play there?

      Hi undercover82!

      I would definitely make a continuation bet here. One high card and two low cards are a good spot to make a continuation bet because you can easily represent the K. Check/raise all-in on the turn looks ugly to me because you don't get much FE (he is lready committed to the pot) and you don't know whether he has a K or not. If he has a K he won't fold here. So I think as played bet/fold on turn would be the best to find out what you are up against.

      Good luck at the tables!
