      No real stats on villain. Should I call his turnbet because he may be playing draws agressively or lower pairs?

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players

      Hero (UTG): 100 BB
      MP: 47.2 BB (VPIP: 17.39, PFR: 4.35, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 23)

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:heart: 8:heart:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.4 BB, 2 players) T:diamond: Q:spade: A:spade:
      Hero bets 4 BB, MP calls 4 BB

      Turn: (15.4 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:
      Hero checks, MP bets 8 BB, fold

      I don't really like open raising A8s from UTG.

      On the flop we have to decide how do we want to play the hand - if we go for a bet, then what are we doing on the turn. Can we go for a check/call?

      The problem here on the turn is that he isn't likely to have much worse hands, so I'd go for a check/fold here.
