      flop i c-bet, nothing special.
      On the flop, villain's flat made me very suspicious. There are not a lot of hands that c/c this flop. Maybe only something like JT or slowplayed monster. I think he c/r his TP sort of hands normally in this spot to see where he's at.
      On the turn i decide to go for pot control, if im c/r im likely to be fucked, and my hand reduces his chances of catching if he's on a draw. So i preferred to induce a bet from worst hands or bluffs.

      Howdy,

      Calling flop cbet is pretty standard as we don't expect reasonable players to donk out with top pair or second pair here or c/r you and isolate himself against top of your range that may beat his QJ/KJ type of hands.
      I would bet turn. He may have Qx/Kx he will definitely call with, so I would hate myself if I miss value from those hands.

      Overall this seems like good betting spot to me without need to get fancy.

      Good luck!

      Hi,


      Agreed. If he check/raises the turn with AJ/AT/JT good for him, I just don't think this happens often enough to warrant us missing value from any and all Qx/Kx hands that will call again on the turn.

      On the river if we follow your thought process he can't have Kx and he can't be bluffing since AJ/AT/JT made a straight or a pair, so do we fold when he bets 3/4 pot (which really doesn't look like a random merge with Qx/Tx?) ? :p


      Hope it helps.
