      BB: $3.88 (97 bb) 10/6 AF:3.1 3B:2.2 FvsCbet:88 560hands
      UTG+2: $1.26 (31.5 bb)
      MP1: $3.43 (85.8 bb)
      MP2: $5.03 (125.8 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $8.35 (208.8 bb)
      CO: $1.71 (42.8 bb)
      BTN: $6.82 (170.5 bb)
      SB: $4.92 (123 bb) 30/11 AF:3.1 3B:6.8 180hands

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J :heart: K :spade:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, SB calls $0.10, BB calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.36) 4 :club: A :heart: 8 :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.24, SB folds, BB calls $0.24

      Turn: ($0.84) 2 :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.84) 9 :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.44, Hero folds

      I dont cbet into two opponents frequently, but the SBs cold calling range is rather wide, and the BBs cold calling range is mostly small PPs,99,1010, JJ,AQ,AJ,KQs,KQ,QJs(given I didn't face a three bet I think I could discount most premium holdings) and will fold most of the time vs cbet. Given those ranges I decided a cbet was warrented, thoughts are appriciated.

      Thank you in advance!

      Nope, I wouldn't cbet there. The reason being is that it is a pure bluff and I don't think it will work often enough to be profitable. You have basically 0 equity in the hand which is the problem. I wouldn't mind a cbet if you even had some more backdoor equity like a flush. All you have here is a back door straight.

      Hello burgermeister,

      You are multiway, so no need to CB in first place here, Check/Fold it. :)

      Best Regards.

      On A high, dry board, with position, and one of opponents has 88%fold to cbet, and not to cbet? I don't see what better spot can we ask for...

      Are you HU with the guy? Not really. :) You also have a loose guy in the pot who has a lot of Ax hands in his range. Vs any other hand we have decent equity with overcards and vs non-made hands even ahead.

      The same goes for BB range who has also enough of Ax hands in his range which could be calling preflop.

      Even if we CB then it wont be any bigger from me than 1/2 pot size.
