      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, J.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.09, 3 folds, BU calls $0.09, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.07.

      Flop: ($0.3) 3, T, T (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.20, BU folds, UTG2 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.7) 6 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.46, UTG2 raises to $0.76(All-In), Hero calls $0.30.

      River: ($2.22) 9 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $2.22.

      I bet on the turn because both opponents stats are 'ROCK' + the flop are quite safe and I have a chance to improve on the next card. (bet for bluff)
      The stats for both opps:
      On the button with VPIP12/PRF7 and fold-to-cbet 67% (who folded)
      UTG: VPIP 9/PRF6, fold-to-cbet not available. (who called)

      On the turn, I have a nuts flush draw with 6c on the turn. Hence, I cont bet on the turn for value/semi-bluff

      Hello slashng,

      Flop: First of all you don't have even to CBet that big, I'd do it like $0,20. If they have a pair then they are going to Call anyways and if they want to continue.
      Turn: And here as well I wont 2nd barrel, I don't think that he will like ever fold any pair which he Called against our pot size bet on flop. Therefore just Check behind to avoid exactly that spot where you just getting too good odds when you betting there.

      Best regards.
