      Pacific Poker - $0.20 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $20.00
      Hero (UTG+1): $20.60
      MP: $22.87
      CO: $11.30
      BTN: $17.40
      SB: $20.00
      BB: $79.25

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.20

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero has A:heart: K:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.70, Hero raises to $2.40, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $1.70

      Flop: ($5.10, 2 players) J:heart: J:spade: 7:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($5.10, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($5.10, 2 players) 9:spade:
      UTG bets $2.55, fold

      I think that I played this hand in standard way. Against unknown opponent I decided to 3bet him. Flop wasn't great from me so I think that cbet wouldn't have been great move here.

      Hello BGawli,

      I do like your play here actually and I wouldn't play it much differently. 3betting preflop is better than calling and having so many opponents behind you. Nice hand!

      But of course depends on the opponent, against some I might Call the river since his line doesn't make much sense. If he had a PP/pair wouldn't he bet the turn after us Checking the flop.

      Best Regards.

      is it completely wrong to consider a cbet here?

      Well, it's a 3bet pot and he wont have that many worse hands from UTG. You wont make any better hands to fold and most likely any hands you get to showdown you are ahead. Unless you really expect him to be really loose and call down with very wide range preflop and also may take stabs postflop on you with that range as a bluff.

      I'm wondering about that especially because lack of aggression on such a board may make weaker hands to take a stab of the pot, but your thought " If he had a PP/pair wouldn't he bet the turn after us Checking the flop." also makes sense and a river call may be another good option.
