I'd check that texture quite a bit with that preflop action and my checking range includes a mix of bluffcatchers, junk, check raise value hands, check raise bluffs, and decent draws that I can check call with.

Re: how to defend checking range?

ye, playing somehigher flush draws and combo draws by x/c on those boards can be a good idea.

Anyway, your question is too general, you are effectively asking how to play poker. Your correctly recognize that you need to to have balanced checking range, but you gotta work out the details yourself.

River. I will try to put my opponent on a hand, and if I can't, I can fold the bottom of my range w/o 2nd thought. The board doesn't matter.

Flop. One is more likely to bet a draw with a lead than to check it. One is also more likely to cbet rich flops with a hand, but that also depends on what you expect to happen.

Re: how to defend checking range?

You could/would certain check some flush draws on the flop, either to check-raise or check-call. I'm not sure if it's optimal, but I would sometimes check with AKdd and AQdd on that flop, since they are beating (or even dominating) all of villain's air, but have a lot of equity even when villain is ahead, and I don't want to get raised and barreled off my hand when I have so much realizable equity.

Re: how to defend checking range?

To give you any decent help with this I'm sure we'd need to have an idea of your 3betting range SB vs CO.

If you have a merged range I would be check/calling all of my Jx (JTs,QJs,J9s,JKs) except AJ. I'd also x/c TT,88 and any 9x combos I have.

I personally think it would be a mistake to x any FD here other than A2dd if you have that, because you will require a x/r when you hit to get any value and will have no FE from better hands V might have like 77,88,TT and maybe Jx folding to 2/3 barrels.

Re: how to defend checking range?

1.I dont have x/r range in 3b pot because I give a lot of equity for free for villains junk

2.On SB I have linear 3b range

3.I have to check A-J because then I overfold river

4.to I dont overfold River on flush board I have to check all Axdd, no other strategy seems to me
