      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , K:heart:
      UTG1 calls $0.05, UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.25, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.85, UTG1 folds, MP1 calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.77) 8:spade: , 2:spade: , 4:club: (4 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $1.05, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Is check/fold OK here? I can't represent anything but high PP.

      Hi,


      If he's a bad aggressive player he might show up with worse hands and bluff you off there, so c-betting isn't that bad since he'll also have missed quite often with their trashy Q9o or whatever.

      Against loose passive players and/or tags, check/folding is fine since they won't fold anything on this particular texture. Loose passive players will float with any two cards and won't bet themselves if they have nothing so going for a showdown is doable. Tags will have mostly middle to high pocket pairs and will never fold them to just one bet with no overcards on board.


      Hope it helps.
