Just wanted to check what the standard line was here. With the ace of diamonds in my hand, I'm inclined to check behind here for pot control & deception. Change the 4 to a King or Queen, and I'd be betting. But I just don't see much calling me other than a ten/flush draws/pocket pairs.

I'd probably bet here, tbh at 2nl they call with so much crap, I wouldnt be suprised to get called here by 2 overcards, ace high, or even someone with 24 offsuit. I wouldn't worry about pot control and deception too much at these stakes, If you have a strong hand bet for value until they tell you to stop.

With two checkers, bet. It's unlikely one has the T, and if he does and is playing tricky it will become evident.

Not only do you probably have the best hand and want to get paid off, but if they fold people will wonder if you made that move as a bluff or not. This will make them more likely to look you up down later in the game.

Umm this is $2NL - K3o will probably call. This is a standard flop value bet - why we are thinking in terms of deceptive value when playing people who can probably just about count how many fingers they have I don't know.

No need to get FPS at microlimits yo.

^^^dddat.

You're a clear favourite over your opponent's range, they'll call with much worse, so bet! This is a standard c-bet for me at 50nl and 100nl fwiw.

It could really go either way...hard to say without any specific reads.
Value betting at .01/.02 is usually a good play, as I'm not really sure how much these opponents will call you down with anything.
Deception works, but it's hard to say without knowing how much your opponents might bluff at this pot.
