      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:

      BB(Hero):
      $4.91

      MP2:
      $2.74
      MP3:
      $5.00
      CO:
      $5.17


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8, 8.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.10, 3 folds, BU calls $0.10, SB folds, Hero calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.32) 8, T, 6 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.10, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.30, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.92) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.75, MP1 calls $0.50.

      River: ($2.42) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, MP1 calls $1.50.

      Final Pot: $5.42.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, eights(8h 8d).
      MP1 shows two pairs, jacks and tens(Jh Th).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, eights(8h 8d).

      Altough the flop was really drawy, I checked because I was sure MP1 would bet. I'm not so found of the check on the turn, tho, as he could have figured it out by the c/r that I had a strong hand and giving him a free card would be really dangerous. How much should I bet here?
      Also, considering a "regular play" what should be a reasonable bet on such flop against two opponents?

      Hi,


      I'd just pot raise as played or lead out pot as a default, halfstackers don't care about the size and it's drawy as hell, make them pay.

      As played just fire out like $0.8 on the turn and jam pretty much any river, he's so bad we can't fold anyway and check/calling on ugly river cards will only miss value from worse hands while still getting us stacked by better hands since he'll bet them.


      Hope it helps.
