      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 8:spade: , 8:diamond:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0,15, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0,15, CO folds, BU calls $0,15, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,52) A:club: , 8:club: , 6:club: (3 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0,35, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,52

      Is this play good? I bet and fold to a raise. I think you can't let your trip 8 go here and check on the flop because of the flush, correct?

      Hello brazyd,

      Against such a opponent who has a mid-stack you can even consider shoving it on flop if he decides to raise you, and betting is a must on such flop with set. Well played.

      Best regards.
