      Hi.

      I prefer checking back A8 here on the Flop. With Ace high vs a wide range, we have a good amount of showdown value.

      I don't like barreling this turn card because despite picking up additional equity, it is a card which coordinates the board further (and thus improve villain's calling range).

      Thanks.
