Been a little quiet over the last few weeks, new house and all that. Got an interesting situation from a live game last night.

So YAY, a hand with no PT stats :)

7 handed, effective stacks 130bb, I limp UTG with 66.

The C/O raises 4xbb to €8, (this guy is primiarly a MTT player, his range here is almost always any pair, AT+, KJ+ ) He will c-bet 100% of the time, and likes to get to showdown with UI AK type hands. I stacked him early in the game with a flopped set vs his AK on an A high flop, I check called every street and he bet off his stack.

SB flat calls, this is unusual, he is a very solid player and aware of position, it is likely he is playing a small pair or suited connector to try to get action the times the C/O has an overpair or flops top pair.

BB folds, I call.

Flop is [6c] [7c] [8d]

So pot size is $26, I have both villians covered they have $250 (ish) each left behind.

Lead it , Check raise or check call ?

Im fast playing the hell out of that flop. I whould think your hand is the best at the moment but with such a draw heavy board i whouldnt be comfortable going to the turn/river with out improving.
Im leading out for a potsized bet and expecting to pick up the pot.

If only the CO was involved I'd check raise but with the SB added in you have to lead here. Bet $22-$26

? CO was the preflop raiser in the hand...

When you lead and CO has a pair (and raises), it will fold out all of the SB's pair+draw/naked OESD/FD type hands, and you don't want that. Leading might also scare AK/AQ out from CO's range.

I just ch-r here, especially if the CO is actually c-betting %100 of the time.

I assume the SB checked the flop? If so you're in great position here. You know the CO will cbet, then you'll get to see the SB action before the betting gets to you. Perfect spot to ch/raise or even ch/fold if the CO cbets and SB reraises all-in (presuming you don't think he would do this with less than a set).

I agree in the ch/r here, because as you said, you are fairly certain that the CO will c-bet any flop. Makes you a little extra dough, while leading into them makes an easy fold for just overcards.

We're assuming SB has checked to you. Pretty dangerous flop, but since you didn't raise PF and aren't in last position, if you lead at it that may be all the money that you get.

Safer to play it fast and lead, but I'd be tempted to C/Cl, or lead the turn if CO doesn't cooperate and bet.


Edit: I'm so slow posting 4 people posted before I finally hit "post". :)

I'd want to get as much in the pot as possible right now. If CO really will c-bet 100% of the time, it's pretty much a sure thing that check-raising will get that done.
