      no point of cbetting, if you don't consider 2nd barreling, since those lose calling station fishes will call you whit any pair 7-K.

      I agree. Your opponent's flat calls before and after your raise indicates someone is likely holding a weak pair and wants to try and hit their set. With such a flop, a C-bet is not all that threatening, since most pairs will call and hope to see a cheap showdown or hit their set on a later street.

      Given your C-bet here, you should have made another larger bet on the turn (around $3.60) to continue repping strength. Only a K or sets will call a large turn bet. It is unlikely your opponent has a K since he wasn't the preflop raiser, therefore I would guess he has a weak suited A as weak as A8, flush draw, possibly as bad as QJ, however still unlikely that he wouldn't raise preflop with such hands or call your preflop raise with such weak hands. More than likely he called with a pocket pair less than T's and is looking for a free showdown. The only other possibility is that he just turned a full house and thinks you may have a K, semi-bluffed the flop with a flush draw or pair, or c-bet with air and he could be setting a trap. If that is the case, a 2nd barrell is needed to find that out. If he has a boat, he's flatting a big bet, raising with a set of Ks (however, again, very unlikely given his preflop play), and everything else he is folding to a 2nd barrell. With such fold equity in a big bet, you have to continue repping strength on the turn if you want to have any shot at winning this pot. If your 2nd barrell is called or raised you need to give up the hand immediately and accept that you have been caught.

      Hello yayasarika,

      Against multiway pot I would just Check it behind here, you are even against pretty loose opponents and rarely will have even fold equity against 2nd pairs there.

      Best Regards.
