      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $40.70
      BB:
      $9.95
      (Hero):
      $10.55


      Preflop: Hero is with Q, Q.
      folds, raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, folds, SB calls $0.85, BB folds, calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($2.8) J, 9, K (3 players)
      SB checks, checks, Hero ?

      Pre-flop:
      Villains are pretty much unknown. I'm happy to 3-bet QQ pre? Bet-sizing should probably be a bit bigger? SB flats OOP? Small pockets and AQ+? I think the MP called for value with broadways, pairs.

      Flop:
      It is check to me...
      Do we get better hands to fold? Nope imo.
      Do we get worse hands to call? Yes, as tons of draws possible.
      Is it worth it to bet here?

      Any thoughts?

      Ok we bet and then get check-raised all-in? Snap fold?

      i would check behind and try to get to showdown as cheaply as possible.
      I don't think weaker hands will call or bet themselves.
      as for draws, there is only gutshots? and fdraws, but AdTd is unlikely. 9d8d and 9dTd are unlikely too.
      but i'm just noobie :f_p:

      Hello Termi8r,

      Bet the flop and protect your hand. :) If we get action then we can easily give up our hand. They are showing weakness with their Check so it's very likely that we are ahead.

      Best Regards.
