      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $6.16
      UTG: $2.27
      UTG+1: $2.97
      Hero (UTG+2): $2.19
      MP: $0.77
      MP+1: $3.41
      CO: $2.05
      BTN: $2.00
      SB: $2.18

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02, UTG+1 posts DB $0.03

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.06) Hero has 9:heart: 8:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 checks, Hero raises to $0.10, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.10, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.26, 2 players) 4:heart: A:heart: 8:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.15, fold

      Hero wins $0.25

      I know villain has nothing here but should I be looking to check-raise for bluff induce and to build pot or will I likely be doing quite bad against a TAGs range here?

      Hello Raknyo,

      Why would you isolate such hands from UTG in first place? If you lack of postflop skill then it's really marginal hand cause it's not that easy to play.

      If you went for the isolating then you can't do anything else than CB it, might even want to CB it bigger and not make your hand look weak.

      Best Regards.
