Seeing as he's just posted in the CO I guess we don't actually have any info on him. Readless, I probably just toss this and wait to get a handle on villain.
But that wasn't the question!
- It's a decent flop for floating. By calling we're telling him we have some sort of made hand. The antithesis of this is that there are no real scare cards we can represent as having helped us on the turn, however this actually helps us in position as the fact that no scare cards can fall means that if villain thinks he was ahead on the flop, he will have little reason to think otherwise on the turn. Hence, if he checks the turn it tells
us he's actually not so sure of his hand, and we stand a good chance of taking the pot with a bet.
- Your average villain is not likely to donkbet here with a huge hand. 2 pair+ invariably slowplays and tries to milk some money from your Ace-something hands here. Villain's most likely holdings are Ax/Kx hands which are fishing for information.
- We have 4 outs to the nuts, which is a small consideration, but it's a nice potential fallback to have.
I initially said I toss this readless but I've almost talked myself around to the opposite line of thinking, heh. Obviously knowing how often villain two-barrels (and what his rough two-barrelling range is - i.e. is he capable of firing again as a bluff, will he fire again with marginal hands or does he have to have a strong holding to fire again) is somewhat important, as is other stuff I haven't thought about yet.
