      Fold preflop, and check/fold postflop! Reread the articles :P Stick to SSS :)

      i don't think the articles specifically mention this situation. But do correct me if im wrong.

      I wouldn't have folded pre-flop because it was a free play as i was in BB. (it says UTG coz the table was 1 man short)

      My thinking here is that since he checked to me postflop, i'll make a standard 2/3 bet to see if he has anything / steal the pot. Since he called, and bet to me after the turn, i fold.

      Sound reasoning? Should i play tighter to a passive opponent?

      You didn't have the initiative preflop (didn't bet), thus betting on flop with the intention to bluff is too risky, besides you don't really have anything here, I would play check/fold.

      Hi hammiemon85,

      I think a bet on the flop is ok but 0,15 should be enough SB has shown alot of weakness complete and then check the flop. Anyway you can play it this way, but i like it more with at least a gutshot or a read.
