      Hero bets $0.14, UTG2 calls $0.14, MP1 calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.69) A (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks, MP1 checks.

      River: ($0.69) A (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.26, UTG2 folds, MP1 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.69.

      So I C-bet the flop, they both call and then comes turn A, so I'm getting scared so I check, but should I have kept betting?

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Your CBet on flop is way too weak, ~$0,22 would be mine at least. We still want to get value from. But as played seems to be fine, not much to ad vs 2 opponents on turn.

      Some GS hands like A5/A2 or even any A3/A4/AJ are possible as well here. Therefore Checking the turn is totally fine. Although the question is what you gonna do if someone bets? For that reason I do sometimes Bet myself to do it for free showdown and maybe even value from Jx/draws.

      Best regards.
