      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.06) Hero has 5:spade: 5:club:

      fold, fold, MP raises to $0.16, Hero calls $0.16, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.38, 2 players) 2:heart: T:club: 8:heart:
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.20, MP calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.78, 2 players) T:spade:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.78, 2 players) 9:club:
      MP bets $0.37, Hero calls $0.37

      I call pre flop for set value. The flop is checked to me so I bet, the board is paired on the turn so I decide to check behind and fold if the river is a Jack or higher.

      He did open to 4x preflop instead of.. everything else really, and he has a ~100bb stack, so I'd say it's quite likely he's some kind of tag regular.The problem is flop check/calling for tags vary widly depending on just how bad they are, so it's not really actionable information.

      I'd either play it like you did or bet again on the turn. It's somewhat thin but we get value from draws still at the cost of owning ourselves further against stuff like A9, it usually acts as a reverse-blockbet and make people less likely to bet out on the river with whatever they have, resulting in us seeing a showdown and actually getting a clue on his flop check/calling range. It's a preference thing really, either one is fine.

      Hope it helps.
