Since it is a flop that I almost always cbet, i would go bet bet bet.. also if you want to build the pot oop and you check flop you would have to check-raise at some point and it looks super strong more than bet bet bet.

Hi Hendo,

Again, no reads, so who knows. But in general I would c-bet all the time here as we're expected to c-bet, it's our most likely time to get some action. If he doesn't have anything, he's not likely to make something. If he's got a Q or draw we're getting called, and just a pocket pair is maybe calling once as well.

I might check this turn card after c-betting, it's likely to be a scare card for him if it didn't improve him, but checking may induce a bluff, or a lighter call on the river.

When you want to build a pot, try to take actions that are most likely to grow it, not actions that keep it small.
