      Bit of a nasty board for me, but can I still try to use my initiative to profitably C-Bet here?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG:
      $1.35
      MP1:
      $1.98
      Hero:
      $3.82

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:diamond: , J:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.11, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0.09.

      Flop: ($0.27) 9:club: , 8:club: , 2:club: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.2, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.67) 5:spade: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.67) 6:spade: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $0.67

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a pair of eights (Ah 8h)
      Hero shows (Kd Jd)

      MP1 wins with a pair of eights (Ah 8h)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well the problem with the board is that a lot of hands are going to continue there. Like any draw, any pair. I'd be rather inclined to just Check it and be happy to see a free card, the opponent doesn't look like a very aggressive player either. Most likely he is going to Check through.

      Best regards.
