      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.88 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9:heart: , 4:heart:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0,10, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0,10, 4 folds, Hero checks, Hero checks, UTG2 checks, MP2 checks.

      Flop: ($0,35) 6:club: , 5:heart: , 4:spade:
      Turn: ($0,35) 5:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0,25, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,35

      Is it ok to play the hand like this with all players so passive? or should i stick to the charts and just check it down? i think this a good spot to try to get the pot.

      Hey brazyd,

      It's better to just check the hand down, because you have some showdown value and if you bet only worse hands will fold, so you don't gain any more value by betting than you would if you just checked the hand down. And against worse hands you will win the showdown anyways, you don't have to push them out.
