      Hello ILuvBeachVB,

      Since it's freeplay you could even consider Bet/Fold on the flop since such a TAG doesn't have a lot weaker hands in his range. But either since it's NL2 I am not really sad about putting my money in there Bet/Call flop and Check/Call is reasonable. Just curious what did he have?

      Best regards.
