      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      MP1: $9.50 (95 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $9.80 (98 bb)
      MP3: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $9.97 (99.7 bb)
      BTN: $4 (40 bb)
      SB: $8.13 (81.3 bb)
      BB: $11.51 (115.1 bb)
      UTG+1: $8.40 (84 bb) 26/21/1.5/23.1/34
      UTG+2: $11.09 (110.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q Q
      UTG+1 raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.20, 5 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.90

      Flop: ($2.55) A 5 T (2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      The reason why I didn't C-Bet was that I he is loose and was unlikely to fold here? However looking at the stats and the board should I have C-Bet? I have a tendency to not C-Bet middle pairs like this situation against loose passive players just like in this example.

      Turn: ($2.55) K (2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.55) 8 (2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      Results: $2.55 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: A 5 T K 8
      Hero showed Q Q and won $2.44 ($1.24 net)
      UTG+1 showed 7 7 and lost (-$1.20 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Nah, I like your play here and I wouldn't play much differently. The turn card isn't the greatest while any Kx now would also Call you. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
