      OK, after my last "Top Pairs in the BB" thread, I should probably know better...

      After the flop got checked around I figured I'd take a cheap stab at the pot and give up if I got 3-bet or called. Was this OK, or is it still just check/fold here?

      Thanks,

      Bet on the Flop here and hope to at least eliminate the player behind you. You have Top Two. Only a 4, QQ or KQ and AQ beat you right now.

      Even with no kicker??? QJ, QT, Q9, and Q8 also beat me. That's why I checked the flop. The only reason I stabbed at the turn was because I figured nobody else likely held a Q or a 4 after the flop action.

      Thanks,

      P.S. - The fish in the SB completed with 64o :rolleyes: I probably should have made a note on him. I guess he was hoping to check-raise me on the river, because I don't know what he would've been scared of to just check it down.

      Ah you´re right with Q8 etc. beating you as well. But still I would bet. Often they both fold and otherwise you know that you have to be suspicous.

      Like played I would be done with that hand on the River anyway after MP2 coldcalled on the Turn.
