Question

In this hand of your six-max game online, you raise to $8. It’s folded to the good regular in the big blind, who makes the call. The flop comes A J 5. He checks.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Check

Although c-betting can be fine sometimes, don’t get too predictable. If you occasionally check through this flop with a pair of aces your opponent will find it very difficult to put you on an ace later in the hand. You may be able to get turn and river value from a hand like J-Ts or Q-J or something similar.
