      Hand 1
      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $23,6
      BU:
      $41,05

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:spade: , A:diamond:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, BU calls $0,75, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($1,90) A:heart: , T:spade: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1,90

      The Villain is extremly loose and also passive.
      So is betting this board almost always the right way?
      Should i check if he is more aggressive?

      This hand happened 20 mins later and the first hand maybe influenced the second. This situation is however different. The Villain is more aggressive and i made a 3B.
      Should i bet the Flop in any situation because of the 3B or is the Board too scary for my Villain.
      ___________________

      I know the Standard way to play both of these hands is to bet the Flop.
      The flushdraw is also a reason for that.
      But against this Opponents can a check the Flop get you more bets?

      - being oop prefer betting, since you need to build the pot. Also you don´t´want to give free card to draws (although he would likely bet his draws if you check)

      Should i check if he is more aggressive?
      - it always seems that you´re going for pot control and since you´re c-betting that board close to 100% I would also prefer betting with nuts and then c/r turn (if you want to mix it up)

      Should i bet the Flop in any situation because of the 3B or is the Board too scary for my Villain.
      - if he has there smt like 55 he would c/f whatever you do, unless he hit there set, but since he would likely c/c you once or even twice, since there are a lot of draws. I would prefer c-betting 2/3 pot on the flop and 2/3 pot on the turn to prepare river shove
