      Hero checks, BB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, BB calls $0.80.

      Turn: ($3.2) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.2.

      Opponent:12/8/2; fold to cbet 29%/WTSD 34% after 291 hands

      Should i just bet/bet and fold to raise or play passive check/call?
      Don't know why i check-raised here... Now i think that c-r only isolated me against opponents better hands.

      Hello valancius,

      Check/Raise doesn't really make sense there, you just isolating against better hands. He will rarely Call with a lot worse. I'd just bet myself there and likely as well bet the turn and don't try anything fancy

      Would you Call a shove if he would shove there on flop?

      Best regards.
