      I got JJ in late position, I 3 bet his MP3 raise he calls, I think his range is like QJ QK AQs AQo AJs AJo, 55+. Is it all right to make a delayed c bet on this board? To get value from worse hands. When he checks back to me I kinda take it like he dosen't have anything strong enough to bet by himself, but he probably got showdown value. So I bet for value with my jacks obvious.

      We fire delayed cbet when board improves in our favor. How does 6c help you?

      Anyway I think bet on turn is ok, to protect against overcards/TT/99 type hands. But I would check behind on river, I don't think you are getting more value out of it.

      Also if what you wrote down you think is his range, thats your equity on river:

      UTG 32.72% 32.10% 0.62% JJ
      UTG+1 67.28% 66.67% 0.62% 55+, AQs-AJs, KQs, QJs, AQo-AJo, KQo, QJo

      So more often then not you'll be beat, more reason to check behind on the river.

      Villain can't handread. As a matter of fact 99% of the players on <100NL can't hand read properly

      Yes I completely agree with this. Bet Turn for value but checking back River is far better since you are value-owning yourself most of the times rather than thin vbet

      hmmm...

      I think I would have cbet flop as the Q hits my range, and many players are scared of overpairs in a 3bet por anyway.

      Then, if he called, I would probably bet turn to get a free showdown in river. If he bets river, I'd have a hard decision... a bit villan-based but without reads I'd be more inclined to fold.

      Anything blatantly wrong with that line?

      Cheers!

      edit: yes there is. I just saw Hero is short stacked, so never mind my line...
