      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 8:spade: 9:spade:

      CO bets $0.85, fold

      CO wins $0.80

      No specific reads on either player.

      Simple question here: in an unraised pot, is it a good idea to fire agains on the turn with the flush draw? I personally just took the free river to hopefully hit and try to win some money, or otherwise lose a small pot in an unraised pot if I wouldn't hit.

      Also, when he called the flop, I figured he could have plenty of Kx, Tx, straight draws and flush draws that he could call another bet with as well, so I figured I wouldn't have that much fold equity. I guess he could fold some small pairs or some 3x (which is already pretty unlikely to begin with).

      So standard check behind?

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: Why are we limping in on the BTN with just one guy into the pot? We can easily isolate here, play with initiative, IP. We also make it harder for SB/BB to come along.

      As played betting flop and checking turn is fine unless you want to 3-barrel a fish.
