      Known players:

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , Q:spade:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,15, CO folds, Hero calls $0,15, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,37) J:diamond: , 9:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0,37) T:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0,2, Hero raises to $0,60, MP3 raises to $1,60, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1,57

      Should i bet the flop once he checks? I think he would cbet most flops, so either he has complete air, or he flopped a monster and is trying to slowplay. He bets the turn and i raise with my overcards and OESD. He raises quickly and i figure he flopped trips.

      Hi Smashie!

      You may as well 3-bet preflop to get initiative.

      As played:
      I like checking behind here. To flop is very draw heavy and we can get check raised and many turncards may improve us (to OESD or FD)


      He is very agressive and bets rather small... How often do you thing he will fold to raise and call?
      With his high AF he may jam here many other made hands 2 pairs, str8, or combo draws and forces us fold. We are loosing all equity we had in POT which he forces us fold.
      I prefer call here and reevaluate on river and folding unimproved here.
