<font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t100</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, Button calls t100, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, BB calls t70.

Flop: (t315) T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>

Final Pot: t1725

Results in white below: <font color="#FFFFFF">
Hero has 8c 8s (two pair, tens and eights).
Button has Tc Ac (full house, tens full of aces).
Outcome: Button wins t1725. </font>

I think this is a big leak in my game. When an opponent just flat calls my flop bet I have no idea where I'm at. On this particular hand the ace was pretty bad card, but it really felt weak to check fold. How do you handle this types of situations?
