      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed)

      CO ($27.85)
      Hero ($27.45)
      SB ($25.55)
      BB ($25)
      UTG ($6.40) stats 88/16.77/2.9/22.22
      UTG+1 ($34.05)
      MP1 ($35.30)
      MP2 ($4.65)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with 6 :spade: 6 :heart:
      UTG calls $0.25, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.25, SB completes, BB checks.

      Flop: ($1) 4 :heart: A :spade: K :club:( 5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $1, SB folds, BB folds, UTG calls $1.

      Turn: ($3) K :heart: (3 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.5, UTG folds.

      Final Pot: $3

      SB and BB were tight players. UTG ... crazy. I thought the board texture was ok to bluff and I had position .As the turn brought another K, I bet again.
      Any comments?

      If you want to take down pot with 66 then raise pf.
      Against 4 players on NL 25 level don´t know how big is your fold equity.
      If UTG probably had pp here, why did he called pot size bet the board that contained two overcards.
      I´ll rather think he maybe had here weak ace.
      I would c/f all the way.

      I didn´t want to take the pot pf . I had a board with good texture, after the hand was checked to me as I had position to bluff. If anybody raised I would fold.

      What I want to check is if it is valid to c-bet in this conditions.

      Can´t answer you, because I´ll never play small pp ip when I´m not the pre-flop raiser or don´t call raise ip/oop.
      You could probably take shots but you´ll never know what SB or BB could hold, even if you put UTG small pp. It is much easier to play if you were pf raiser.

      Your bet is not a c-bet as you aren't the preflop aggressor. And that's the problem: a solid player would try to put you on a range. What would you think: you see a limper and the button limps behind. What are his likely hands? More hands like AK/AQ/KQ or more hands like pockets or suited connectors? The problem is, that it's hard to represent a hand on this board. If you are very aggressive, I'd put you on 44 as its more likely in your range than AK. However, if I'd have an A/K in this spot, I'd call, just because there's a big chance that you are just betting because you are in position. Summarizing, I think betting in position after all other players show no interest in the pot is a good play, but against solid players you have to be aware that you can really represent a hand.
