      Button is a fish and playing 28/8/60 hands. Playing generally fit/fold style, so i just want MP fold and take pot with cbet. In 3 way pot i dont think my A8 has any value, so just check/fold or its to weak?

      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8 A

      Pre flop is fine for value against fish.

      Flop I think it's a value bet against hands like A2 KQ KJ etc. If you check fold the flop then what are you 3 betting pre flop for value against? If you think you are behind on this flop then you should have just folded pre flop

      in heads up situation i should bet flop for value against a fish (BU)
      But do i have value bet in 3way pot against tighter MP range? Whats a plan if i bet flop? bet/fold or check/fold turn?

      i think you still have value because most of the time MP is going to fold and the fish could call worse hands.

      when called i think you dont have much value on the turn and river because draws may not call another bet on the turn and you are isolating against just A and maybe K.

      if he checked the turn i think ill bet river again for value but small, against hands like Kx and A3 A4 A5 etc
