      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q K

      MP checks, Hero checks

      Results:
      $5.75 pot ($0.28 rake)
      Final Board: 2 8 A 6 9
      MP showed T 9 and won $5.47 ($2.97 net)
      Hero mucked Q K and lost (-$2.50 net)


      Is it good plan to check it down in these spots with the nut non pair hand or is it better to take a stab on the flop/turn ?
