One thing I've been struggling with is what to do on hands where I've got two big cards (say AQ, for example) and the board is all rags. What kind of criteria should I be using to decide if I can think my hand is best and go ahead and bet or call it down vs just dumping it? Generally in situations like this I will have raised PF and anyone else in the pot would have called.

I think its comes down to how much information you have on the villain.

Too many unknowns. Villain range. Your stack. Bet amounts. Just depends man. If just one caller c-bet and see what happens.

You should be c-betting a huge percentage of the time, whether you hit or not. Now if you get someone firing back at you, just take your pot odds and equity into consideration and make the call or fold.

It depends, but in most cases you should fold
