      Questions below

      $0.05 NL - Holdem - 6 players

      Hero (BTN): 108.2 BB
      SB: 89 BB (VPIP: 35.71, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 14)
      BB: 78.8 BB (VPIP: 36.00, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 25)
      UTG: 53 BB (VPIP: 21.43, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 14)
      MP: 155.4 BB (VPIP: 21.88, PFR: 15.63, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 32)
      CO: 30 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 9)

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:diamond: 8:diamond:
      fold, fold, CO calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 5 BB, fold, fold, CO calls 4 BB

      Flop: (11.4 BB, 2 players) 8:spade: 9:club: 4:heart:
      Thoughts and questions:
      should I bet small vs a passive player? I'm used to check behind my middle pair vs regular, but this guy didn't look one

      CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (11.4 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:
      Thoughts and questions:
      I thought about checking again 'cause I couldn't think in any worst hand that would've called me or better hands that would've folded, but that looked so weak that I decided to bet.
      Was that ok?

      CO checks, Hero bets 5.6 BB, fold

      Hero wins 11 BB

      Limp/calls are very difficult spots to assign a range.
      Flop board is dry (rainbow), the bigger draw is a OESD. I'm cbetting here, even more against a recreational that calls too much.
      Turn adds a flushdraw and fish love flushdraws, so bet while you probably have the best hand.
