"As played: I would play this pretty straight forward as we are on a heavy disadvantage both in rangeperespective and with our concrete hand.
We lag so much of strong hands on this board that i dont think leading or checkraising is a great idea. The small amount of blockingproporties our hand offers is usueless as we shouldnt have AA/KK at all in our range and might also 4bet AK on a decent frequency pre while Villain could still slowplay some of these combos. So we are basically repping 3 combos of 88 and some AK (at best)" (- RaoulFlush)
True! I got a bit carried away in thinking about my opponents range (after he checks flop) that I lost thought about what I´m myself repping=(

"You cant justify these exploitative lines unless you have information that co is betting too weak of hands and folding too much to raises or he folds too much to turn leads, it is a backward thinking process in which you are just guessing and incorrectly using a line that requires prior information when you don't have it. .... Its super dangerous to be playing this way, hence why its important to study theory to know what the default straightforward optimal line is." (-Dr. Maximilious Exploitopoulos MD)

Was thinking about this turn spot. Do we play it as a check-call (with the idea that taking an agressive line won´t fold out anything better)? Or checkraiseing to get him of his weak Ax/KJ/KQ with a barrel on the river? Or leading turn to get him of JJ/QQ?
