      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $2
      UTG2:
      $2.24
      CO:
      $2.56

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:diamond: , 8:heart:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, CO calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.07) Q:club: , 8:spade: , 6:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks, CO bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.16, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.19


      After he folded I felt like my check/raise was too strong and I could have got more value by calling and giving the (somewhat aggressive) opponent another opportunity to bet into me. Do you agree or is it better to fastplay as I did here?

      Thanks

      Hello member001,

      Just bet pot yourself and start building up the pot. Otherwise as played I'd rather as well Check/Raise and try to build up the pot vs those opponents.

      Best regards.
