Hero mucked 8 8 and WON $6.45 (+$3.70 NET)

The initial raiser stealed a lot of blinds so I decided to bump it ups since I felt there was a big chance to take it down right there. Once I got the call i was pretty sure he was on a small-medium PP. I am wondering if I should check the flop or bet more...
My plan actually was to induce a raise since the bet looked a bit small and weak. What do you guys think about that hand?

Obviously don't know the table dynamic or your history, but to me that doesn't look like a weak bet. I'd favour checking I think. At worst, you're letting him draw 2 outs to a straight flush, and more likely you're letting him follow through with a small overpair or stab with AK or something. I don't think most players are calling you there with anything they wouldn't have bet anyway.

I'd bet, their a few draws out their and an opponent with a draw will likely reraise. You might even be able to get it allin on the flop with him drawing dead. Even if he just calls you'd have missed 1 street of value by cheching, which can multiple up like compound interest.

lol talking about possible 2 outs to the str8 flush. NO FREE CARDS !11!

Im almost always betting here because of what you said, small PP etc and because I lead most of the time on that kind of flops.
Against an aggro monkey who cant read a hand, I dont mind a check.

Underlined portions make a check look appetizing at 25nl.

I don't think there's one play that is clearly better than the other against an unknown. If you check, you might induce far weaker hands to show down against you, and I think draws will still bet (even though they can't raise you if you don't bet out). Checking looks a lot like AK unless you're super tricky and would check a high overpair on a flop like that. That means you can probably get action from a small pp on the turn/river so long as an ace or king doesn't hit.

At low stakes against someone who appears passive, I'm leaning toward checking. At higher stakes or against aggro players, I'm leaning towards betting as KS said since the prospect of getting raised here is just too good to pass up.

nh, but calling preflop works as well and could be more +EV with the callers.

callers as in calling station. Cause they pay off sets in small pots and are less likely to fold to your 3bet/cbet.

A 25NL random is likely to reraise with a draw? I might be way off, but I don't think that's the case.
