      BTN stats
      SB stats

      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Button ($52.70)
      SB ($50)
      BB ($51.45)
      UTG ($12.25)
      Hero (UTG+1) ($11.20)
      MP1 ($9.65)
      MP2 ($53.85)
      CO ($234.90)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A, K
      1 fold, Hero bets $2, 3 folds, Button calls $2, SB calls $1.75, 1 fold

      Flop: ($6.50) 6, A, 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4, 2 folds

      Total pot: $6.50

      Standart hand, but what do you think about a check at flop? I understand, that slowplaying top pair isn't a good idea, but its so standart- If I have Ace, than bet, if no than check and those regulars know that so I get no action with TPTK. I guess 6 and 7 on board aren't that scary to me.

      What if someone holds 88 and on the turn comes another eight? Slowplay is good with three of a kind and more, with TPTK you have to make a bet.

      it's simply so strange if you check an Ace-high Flop.

      You can check-raise a Jack-highflop 3way with an Overpair.

      edit: everybody who does not hold AQ or better is scared of this flop.
      So you get no payout of weaker hands here.

      I cant imagine a bet from the Button with 99-KK here.


      So make a contibet. AQ (AJ) will always pay you here.
