i think youre referring to the fact that i raised him on the flop? If so then...
like you said, raising on the flop would be the same as tabling our cards and saying hey dude, i have an ace. so if i continue on the turn, and if he's anything better than a drunk player, he'll for sure know i have an ace. so i checked back, hopefully letting him think that i bluffed at the flop, to induce him to bet on the river.
I get what you're saying, but it's just FPS. What you're saying is... oh wait a minute, I played straight forward on the flop, now let's confuse him and check back the turn? Why not just flat the flop, and then let him continue his donking on the turn? Doesn't this accomplish what you are trying to do? Now we just miss a street of value, and it's silly. I am pretty certain this villain will be "on an island", "in no man's land" if we just flat the flop, in regards to what he thinks we have. We just don't want to give this guy a chance to get away here. Because if you fold him out on this flop (not this spot necessarily, but all spots like this in the future), you are just throwing money away.
As played, get value. Continue betting
. Value/protection. He did call the flop. Now we have a FD to worry about, not to mention some paint cards V could have, and we don't want him hitting broadway (unless K gives him broadway), or hitting a boat with a PP, if we just check back and let him get there. I don't know what he has exactly, but straight draws and PPs make sense. However, we are blocking some straight draws, and it would actually be funny if he hit the straight that gave us a boat, but it's whatever.
And this is micro stakes. This guy doesn't have to be drunk to make bad calls. He already made one (I think anyways, calling flop raise). They just never believe you. If he had us beat, congratulations villain. You have taken a strange line, and cold decked us....
You trying to misrepresent your hand is unnecessary as played. Just bet the turn.
Ideally, we just want to call flop, and just let him continue putting money in with an inferior hand. If we flat flop, and he bets turn, raise him at that point.
