      What do we do here on turn if we were up against an aggressive opponent? c/c for pot control?
      if up against a passive opponent, do we check/call for pot control or rather bet again?

      Hi, inlovewithamsterdam!

      Tricky.

      Against an aggressive opponent I *might* check flop already and expect him to represent the ace all day long. But then again, aggressive opponents *usually* don't limp pre flop anyway :D

      Against a loose/passive guy I'd bet turn again, even if it's very thin. We're charging spade draws and the odd 8x, but that's about it unfortunately... however, both check/calling and check/folding I think are slightly inferior (as I matter of fact, I think check/folding > check/calling if he is *really* passive and will probably check back draws and 8x).

      River I think is even trickier/thinner. I think it's unlikely for a very passive guy to call twice and then bluff a missed draw on the river, so we can bet turn and just check/fold most rivers expecting him to check behind all that we beat.

      Meh, I dislike all the lines too but lets face it: you have a very weak and vulnerable hand playing out of position. Not a spot in which you'll make money unless you hit a non :spade: 4... because EVEN if our opponent calls down with 8x those won't be so many more than Ax on his calling range thus even in that case we're not making big $ at all.

      If it's close, it means it's not a spot you need to worry all that much (since you won't make much $) provided you don't lose (i.e., spew) in it as well :D

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      No matter what, we are just Betting here, we need to protect our hand. :P It's a freeplay pot and it's not so likely that they will take stabs here anyways. Which means I'd also continue betting the turn for protection and free showdown.

      Best Regards.
