      hello veriz. i think i have a fair few hands i'd like you to evaluate please. first of all is this one:

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , K:diamond:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.10, 3 folds, BU calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, BB folds, MP1 calls $0.30, BU calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.22) 8:spade: , 6:club: , 3:heart: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.7, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.22

      since i made a substantial p/f raise i didn't expect for both MP1 and BU to call.. so i found myself in a 3-way pot where i wasn't sure if i should have just given up on the hand or if i should have c-bet. check calling i didnt think was an option since i made the preflop raise. i thought the only real hands that would call here are 888, 666, 333 and AA - 99. since i had the initiative if i made a c-bet into this dry board i could make all worse hands fold which seemed to work, but is this +EV?

      Hello DrDunne,

      On such a board and being against rather looser opponents I'd be inclined to Check/Fold the hand. There ain't worse hands anyways which Call us and most likely they ain't gonna fold their pairs/PPs here.

      Best regards.
