      Hero showed K K and won $3.25 ($1.62 net)


      Is checking to induce bluffs a good option here? I figured there's not much value in betting the flop since it's pretty dry and I'm only likely to get calls from aces which beat me.

      Hi, numbnutter!

      Against a very weak player it might be an option indeed.

      Against a better opponent you need betters reads will only put yourself in tough spots; an aggressive player might bet big 3 streets for bluff there and I think you'd have a very hard time calling.
