Check with the intention of either calling a bet or raising it, depending on what happens.

What is your read on the PF-raiser?

Button will do this with an ace and any 3 in a limped pot. I call only because I expect everyone else to merely call and 2 of them have double buy-in stacks so if I hit a good flop (check) I can possibly double up.

For me it depends on how the table's been acting and how good a read they've got on you:

If checking the flop would make them suspicious, I'd just make a normal sized bet here (maybe around 40c) and hope to milk one or two players.

If checking the flop wouldn't make anyone immediately suspicious, I might go for a check-call or check-raise depending on the action.

This really sums it all up right here....the others players reads on you or how you've been acting up to this point dictates what you do in this situation. Although, i'm thinking check-calling the flop, check-calling the turn and then shoving 3/4 pot on the river should be good as long as a scare card doesnt hit along the way (i.e. Ace when you think he's holding A,A,x,x)

It's not a scare card and he seems happy to do your betting for you... so again, I'd probably just flat call. There's enough in the pot now that we'll be able to get the rest of our stack in on the river

I'm putting him maybe on a 9 and A-x of spades: a couple of draws that size would probably warrant this kind of betting? Be nice if it was the case, both play into your hands :)
