Bad Flop with Top Pair-2/5 NL

Hero-good tight Image had been card dead but used Image to advantage in a few spots $850, -raised to $20 UTG with AsJs-V1-MP loose and called almost all raises calls $375-BTN-V2 Calls-clueless bad player calls-$300 and BB calls who was okay but bet weak draws with small raises and bet his hands face up-picked on him quite a bit/ $350, Pot is $80 =Flop comes 8h10h-Jc-I check UTG with that type of board to see what happens, MP bet $35 and at the same time the BTN bet $70 not realizing the MP player had even bet yet, almost anxious to get a bet in..I was fully expecting to check raise the MP raiser but when the BTN raised like that I got out of the way-so I folded and MP was able to take his $35 bet back and also folded and Btn showed Jh-9d..Was this a bad fold by me with that type of board and the btn and MP player not really having a big stack so to speak to go after? Thoughts?

    Y did MP get to take his bet back.
    He bet.... Ten got to take it back because the BTN bet out of turn. Then I'm assuming te buttons bet of $70 was enforced to stand.... Sounds really weird. Is that what happened

    Betting the flop is the best course of action. You get plenty of value from draws and can easily fold to a raise. Checking makes it very difficult to play.

    I know this is not the point I the thread but I wonder if mp had bet $70 at the same time as BTN bet $35 (amounts reversed) if MP could have taken back his bet then.

    i usually dump on people for "information" bets. The "information" check seems way worse.

    You need to bet the flop with TP TK....plenty of hands that are worse to get value from...I'd bet 50-60 here.
