      Should 3 bet pre-flop?

      On flop I'm happy to call c-bet, figured I can consider fold on turn if villian shows enough aggression.

      When villian checked I bet for value / avoid over-cards having a free card to hit.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG2:
      $2.14
      Hero:
      $1.84
      BU:
      $1.97

      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 MP2 with J:spade: , J:diamond:
      2 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.07, MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.07, 2 folds, BU calls $0.07, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.24) Q:club: , 5:diamond: , 4:heart: (3 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.17, Hero calls $0.17, BU folds.

      Turn: ($0.58) Q:spade: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.32, UTG2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.58

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Nah, I do like your play. Although on flop the Call is pretty close. Since as you see the guy is still CBetting into multiway pot. If his CBet is rather smaller here then I doubt that he is bluffing/semi-bluffing here.

      Best regards.

      His c-bet percentage was 70%, sample isn't too bad (200 odd hands).

      Not sure what that related to in a multi-way pot, maybe 50%?

      Well, most likely something around that, I would say 60%. But ye, 70% ain't that big. :( Really close spot. Guess he just had something like AK. :>
