Default Whats up small stakes

I was playing a short game then it filled up. Havent seen any fireworks in the last few hands, possible they could be passive-ish. Anyway, I guess we can treat this as a general concept.


PokerStars 5/10 Hold'em (8 handed) converter

Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. MP2 posts a blind of $5.
UTG calls, UTG+1 calls, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises</font>, <font color="#666666">4 folds</font>, BB calls, UTG calls, UTG+1 calls.

Flop: K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
BB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, BB calls, UTG calls, UTG+1 calls.

Turn: 3[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(4 players)</font>
BB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero.....

Sure, it's painful to be checkraised. But you can not give a free card on this coordinated board 4-handed when you are likely to have the best hand. Why would you?

I'm with QTip. These hands make me feel blind, I just can't see the check here.

hero bets. I don't think it's even close. Why would you give lone spade a free shot to take the pot away from you?

you have to bet. getting checkraised sucks. losing to a hand like 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] on the river when he would have folded sucks waaay worse.
