So in the hypothetical situation with only one overcard on the board (let's say it's either an Ace or Queen, if your answer changes then give both) and I bet and get raised on the flop...do I peel or just muck on the flop?
It depends on the player and overcard, but in general I'm much more likely to peel on a K or Q than an A, because it's just much more likely that we have the best hand, considering the passivity of our average oppponents. It also depends on specific opponent. Obviously we call down vs. opponents who bluff or semi-bluff very often, but vs. guys who raise only with a narrow value range we can certainly just fold the flop. With one overcard, we're definitely get into the vague "play poker" realm and have to consider the situation rather carefully. With two overcards in this spots, I think it's a very simple check-fold. It's just important to have a feel for as much information in the situation as possible and make good decisions from there.
