      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has A:spade: J:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.16, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.16, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.38, 2 players) 8:diamond: T:spade: A:diamond:
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.20, UTG+1 raises to $0.72,

      No information about the villain, except that he was pretty aggressive preflop. Preflop I decided to call to see the flop. After he checked, I couldnt really figure where I was standing so I decided to lead out to see where I stand. Is it more profitable to fold in a hand like this, suggesting that most likely this check-raise is rather a trap?
      Even more, was the flop bet the correct move, considering he was an aggressive player preflop?

      The way the hand was continued: fold

      UTG+1 wins $0.75

      Hello faronel,

      Without information there is not much to do than fold the hand. Could easily be some trap and if he really wanted fold equity then why not CBet it?

      But myself I would bet it a bit bigger on flop ~$0,30 for the reason that the board is so drawy.

      Best regards.
