      I was up against one opponent on the flop. I wasn't happy when I saw an ace and a nine on the flop but since I just had one opponent, I made a Cbet. When I was called the turn went check, check and I got lucky on the river getting my set.

      Was the Cbet on the flop the right move?

      I might as well stick another one in here.

      Was the Cbet on the flop ok on this one? I only have top pair but weak kicker but again, against one opponent, I thought, "Give it a shot". I checked the turn and again got lucky on the river.

      1. yeah, everything ok. Pf raise ok, flop cbet fine, and river play - well, normal ;) .
      2. you're against two oponents with tp and no kicker. I would've check/folded that till the end - you don't really have much fold equity in unraised pot. On the river it was ok, but you also could've thought about betting a bit less - just in case he thinks you're maybe bluffing.
