      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $0.81
      BB:
      $2.00
      MP1 (Hero):
      $1.97
      MP2:
      $1.83
      MP3:
      $1.30
      CO:
      $1.61
      BU:
      $1.29


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q, A.
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, CO calls $0.08, BU folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.26) 5, J, 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($0.26) T (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.16, CO folds, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.26.

      Is it a correct play to avoid c-betting on a flop, deciding that with an tight-aggressive table image, a c-bet would be called, although the flop is rather dry, there is nothing I can really represent.

      Hello lynius,

      Well, seems to be fine vs NL2 loose opponent. :) Although if I am skipping the bet on flop then most likely I'd also Check behind on turn, I doubt that you making any pair/PP there to fold and most likely are even ahead with your A high anyways vs those hands which fold.

      Best Regards.
