      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , Q:spade:

      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!

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

      As played:
      Flop:
      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)

      Turn:

      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.
