      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $0.92
      Hero (SB): $2.00
      BB: $2.73
      UTG: $0.66
      MP: $1.81
      CO: $1.84

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:spade: T:spade:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.04, BTN calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.24, fold, CO calls $0.20, fold

      Flop: ($0.54, 2 players) 3:heart: 6:club: 4:heart:
      Hero bets $0.30, CO raises to $0.60, fold

      PF: CO and BU seem weak so I squeeze with a suited ace. Not sure if this was a wise move with AT, as I have a high potential to be dominated against his calling range. Would prefer a suited connector next time as they will have decent equity against his calling range.

      When he calls I'd put him on a range {88-AA, KQ, (KJ), AJ+ but he is likely to ship QQ+, maybe AK}.

      So he has a total of roughly 42 combos of pairs and 80 combos of un-paired hands.

      F: I think I can profitably c-bet this flop as most of his range, won't have an over-pair and will subsequently have to fold to a bet.

      Question: Is my logic and c-bet profitable?

      Likely AQ/AK would sometimes float you on that board and also sometimes players are bluffraising. Since you have no backdoor draws then you can consider c/f. Pre-flop 3-bet is fine- you´re not too often dominated and often take pots down pre-flop or postflop

      best regards,
