      Question: should I cbet on this board or check behind? If I cbet, I will often isolate myself vs top pair+. If I check behind, villain can hit one of his outs. But he will also see me as a weak hand and bet with worse cards. So check behind here?

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

      Hero (BTN): 126.2 BB
      UTG: 100 BB (VPIP: 27.27, PFR: 18.18, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 11)

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has T:diamond: T:heart:

      UTG raises to 2.4 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 7 BB, fold, fold, UTG calls 4.6 BB

      Flop: (15.4 BB, 2 players) 2:spade: 8:heart: A:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero bets 8 BB, fold

      Hey MarliesB,

      Preflop value 3bet is probably too thin vs an UTG open. I would flat call.

      On the flop I would check back. In these spots the lower your PP the more inclined you should be to turn it into a bluff. TT is usually strong enough to bluffcatch on the turn - although not as good in this case after villain flatted a 3bet OOP.
