    $100.00 USD NL Texas Hold'em - Tuesday , April 20 , 08:18:50 ET 2010
    Table Sligo 2 (Real Money)
    Seat 5 is the button

    So Hervemetz folds alot to 3bets and folds alot to cbets. He is 18/17/36 but steals about 40% on the button. No particular reads so far.

    I wasnt sure how to play this, since i think when i bet i will mostly get called by better.
    I thought if i check my range is mostly ahead of his betting range, since he can fire AJ/AQ/KQ and maybe some suited connectors, or other stuff that he called, with even though i weight his range heavly to broadway hands.

    So i want to keep as much weak hands in the pot as i can. On the turn i wasnt very sure what to do, but i decided to call again and reevaluate the river. Can there be made an argument for checkraising? I fold out the equity he has with AQ and will probably get a call from AJ since he got so much money invested already. But maybe i am overestimating how agressive he can be here and turn is a fold.

    obviously u dont have a plan in this hand so first thing: 3betting is bad if you will have so many questions postflop
    on a second note i will cbet this flop with my whole range(i dont see myself checking with draw or air here neither with made hands vs regs)
    on a 3rd note if he calls preflop and flop with your observation that "Hervemetz folds alot to 3bets and folds alot to cbets. He is 18/17/36 but steals about 40% on the button" this leaves only strong hands and good draws in his range => u can simply check fold the turn after you cbet flop

    i dislike c/c lines in this spot so i cant really comment on the hand as played but probably fold is ok
