      Hi,

      No we dont cbet in these hands. We dont have a made hand and there are 3 people in the hand. So we check/fold until our hand improves like hand 1.

      If you were heads up, I would cbet.

      Hey scett,

      Welcome to the SSS section.

      You played well your posted hand, nothing to change. We don't c-bet against more than one opponent with trash, because fold equity isn't high enough in order to be profitable.

      The second hand is also well played except for the 1bb raise on the turn. Just check it down to get as cheap showdown as possible with A-high.

      Just one request, please remove the results when you post hands or at least make them invisible.

      Regards,
      burek2000
