      SB checks, Hero checks

      $1.05 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: 2 7 8 Q T
      Hero mucked A K and lost (-$0.50 net)
      SB showed J Q and won $1.01 ($0.51 net)

      Opp is 31/13 2AF

      I check back the flop, he is short stacked and I don't want a shove. Bad play?

      With his second check I bet as a semi.

      Check down unimproved.

      Hey trzewia,

      Not necessarily terrible to check back flop, but I do think you will have a profitable cbet in this spot, because even if you don't take the pot down that much you still have outs to improve.

      Turn bet is fine as a semi-bluff.

      River check back is fine.
