      You can do either. Value bet vs a calling station. Check/call vs villian that likes to bet when checked to.

      Also depends on preflop range. Check/call if they flat a lot of speculative stuff. Value bet if they play QT, KT etc.

      This pretty much. When in doubt, just err on the side of valuebetting at microstakes, and go for the check/call if you have reasons to believe he's aggressive enough to bluff busted draws there (if he bets again Tx himself while also bluffing busted draws, all the better for you).


      Hope it helps.
