      Final Pot: $2.13

      I've tried betting around 1/2 pot at paired boards 3 or possibly 4 way in postion a couple of times and basically want to know if this is every a good idea at this limit and if so when? In this case I think my bet is probably bad due to the min 3bet. Both opponents are totally unknown. My reasoning is that if I get raised it's an easy fold and if I get called I'm mostly likely up against 9x or a pocket pair and can still hit and often see the river for free.

      Well that is quite try board, so I don´t mind taking there stab that might easily be the best hand, since you likely can´t c/c flop

      I also like your check behind on the turn since it is likely he has there pp and I think he would not fold to your turn barrel+ you´re sometimes ahead his random hands that he wanted to see turn
