      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, J.
      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.05, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, MP3 calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($0.97) 2, T, K (3 players)
      MP1 checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.97) Q (3 players)
      MP1 bets $0.20, MP3 raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, MP1 calls $0.20.

      River: ($2.17) 5 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2.17.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(Q J).MP1 shows a pair of tens(T 6).MP3 shows a pair of fours(4 4).Hero wins with a pair of queens(Q J).

      Both players extremly loose, MP1 a lot of bluffs in his range

      Yes, you should CB. That's a very good board for a CB, you have an OESD on a dry K high board.

      If you get a call, you can defenetly consider a second barrel on many turn cards, as you very credibly represent a K and your opponent can easy have a pocket pair (like: 88,77,99), or T. If he has a K or a set he will not foald, but you still have equity against those hands.

      Yes a definite Cbet here. As Bogdan said, ultra dry board that is K high so we can fold out hands that currently beat us a lot. We can also barrel a decent amount of turn cards and we have equity against any made hand :)
