      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $6.04
      BU:
      $4.90
      SB:
      $5.22
      BB:
      $6.57
      UTG2:
      $2.69
      MP1:
      $5.89
      MP2:
      $7.57
      MP3 (Hero):
      $5.12


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, A.
      UTG2 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 2 folds, SB calls $0.23, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.8) 7, 2, 3 (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG2 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.8) A (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.55, SB folds, UTG2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.8.

      I check because the board is low carded so I can't represent much more than an overpair here, but I have a feeling it would in fact be much much better to cbet this board because of all the good turn cards I can barrel. My main fear was being check-raise bluffed off a hand with a small amount of showdown value. Should I ignore this worry against unknowns on this level?

      Hello fryandspicy,

      Not really, you can easily just skip the CBet against loose Calling stations, also any kind of PP will Call you on flop. Therefore I'd say well played!

      Best regards.
