Q > You raised before the flop with ace king. One opponent called. The flop comes with four, nine and two in different suits. You bet. Your opponent calls. The turn brings a second four. What do you do?
1..You check and decide to call if someone makes a bet.
2.. You check and decide to fold if someone makes a bet.
3.. You bet.
Against most opponents you would bet.
Against a calling station you check/fold.
You never c/c
Option 1 sucks, once you take a C/C line you have lost unless you hit, and if you do hit it probably kills your action.
Option 2 .. the board is 942 rainbow. Its is a dry board. Other than 99,44,22 TT+JJ and A9s what does your opponent have? His range contains many overcards in addition to these hands. He is likely floating you, realising that this board probably didnt hit you and planning on betting if you check.
option 3. Bet! bet with the intention of not putting any more money in the pot. Floating is so common., This board misses his flatting range so much that a bet should take it down a lot. Obviously dont bet into calling stations who would call you down with 22.. but against most players this is a bet. We are basically betting to protect the best hand (most of his range are overcards so how do you feel if a Q,J,T falls on the river?) and to fold out weak hands like 66 that might have called one bet.
If he calls that then we have to put him on TT-JJ a set (although this will raise any river so it wont stop us betting thin if we do hit an A or K) A9 88 or 56?
