Default How about a summary of Post-Flop lines?

Can anyone spare the time to give a fairly clear definition of what a few post-flop lines refer to? This should help avoid repeated questions from newcomers as well clarify discussions for more experienced players. A simple paragraph summarizing how and why the common lines are used would be appreciated.

-Way ahead / Way Behind
-Stop and Go
-Free Show Down
-Rope A Dope
-etc...

I'm not sure if there's really 'common lines' persay, each line is for a unique situation, and you should have variation in your game.

I think OP is just looking for a list of definitions and when each line may be applicable.

i simply mean "common" phrases used around here. People say these things all the time in posts. Yet it often appears that two different posters had different interpretations of what pattern of play those words describe.

Most of these "lines" are not clearly defined in the poker literature. It wouldn't hurt to have a general consensus on what we mean when we say something.

Here are the first 2... I'll do the others in the morning if no one else has...

Way ahead way behind

Button raises, hero calls in the BB with A7o.

Flop A23. Hero checks, Button bets, Hero calls.
Turn 9. Hero checks, Button bets, Hero calls.
River 8. Hero bets. (Whether to call a raise or not is player dependent).

Realize how hard it would be for villian to raise a hand like AT here (which he would bet if we checked) and that he will probably check QQ behind if we check but call a bet.

Stop and Go

Hero is BB with K4. Villian calls on the button, small blind folds, hero checks.

Flop is KT2. Hero bets, villian raises, hero calls.

Turn is a 4. Hero bets.
