so is this a right spot to bet/fold, or should I check and give away my hand strength? I'm worried that he'll catch up on he A scaring me so he might try to bluff twice and I'd have to fold in that case.

Hi Praydk,

I think folding the turn is right. But I think we could have taken a 3bet line preflop. I would be more inclined to just call against one opponent especially when they are opening a tight range from UTG but here we have a caller and we are in the SB; by calling we might give the BB good odds to call too and our hand ... well.. is not great to play MW. I think with the added dead money I'd go for a 3bet to 0.65$ and plan to get it in to a 4bet given that the UTG is not a nit.

As played, I prefer checking to the preflop raiser. By betting we will be folding bluffs and force our opponent to continue with a narrow range. I'd x/c flop and reevaluate the turn. I think we don't need to be worried about getting outdrawn too much here.
