Question

You’re playing $1/$2 Hold'em at your local casino. In this hand it’s folded to a decent but loose-ish regular in the cut-off who raises to $8. You three-bet him to $24 and everyone else folds. He calls and the flop comes A 5 2. He checks.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Check

You should check this one through. If your opponent doesn’t have an ace he’s turbo-mucking and if he does have an ace, well, you just put more money into the pot with a worse hand. Betting accomplishes nothing, so check and play poker on the turn.
