I suppose I would like to use this post to discuss some of the frustrations that my fellow players have with playing certain hands, for example say you flop top pair and you're in position, and the hand you have is one of the above, you're heads up and the guy leads out what do you do?
With no information I would take caution if I have not noticed any over activeness from the opp.
also look at his position it's sometimes handy to gauge how many hands they are playing from EP,MP a disciplined player, Might be mucking a huge proportion from EP where as a more loose, unpredictable player needs his action studied.
Depending on the board as well. They may just have top pair and there is a draw out there, or they may have a draw.
Depending on the board we can float in this spot or obviously re-raise if on the looser side.
Depending on the pre flop action and the players level of game play don't fear repping a hand if you have a decent indication of range and your facing a solid player you'll be surprised how many guy's will fold if the turn get's messy
and they have one pair.
I guess the best advice is observation and trial. To find out what work's
Also it doesn't need to be your hand someone else might expose the information you need to know from an opponent, so always be watching these guys actions after playing OOP or playing specifics area's of the table
