      iPoker - $0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: $5.55
      BB: $5.06
      Hero (UTG): $7.60
      CO: $4.96
      BTN: $7.96

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.06) Hero has Q:spade: Q:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.16, fold, fold, SB calls $0.14, fold

      Flop: ($0.36, 2 players) 2:heart: J:heart: K:heart:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.36, 2 players) 3:spade:

      what do we do with hands like QQ on flops like this? Should I cbet it or is it allright to check and see, what villain does on turn?

      i'd say bet it. it's really unlikely he flopped a flush - much more likely he flopped a FD. maybe he has something like AT w/A :heart: or maybe AJ w/A :heart: . you have to bet and protect and he may well not be as strong as he thinks while you practically kill his chances of getting a straight.. on top of this you get him to fold out lots of pocket pairs and other speculative hands that completely missed and are giving up. i'd Cbet ~6bb otf and re-evaluate the turn.

      i agree it does suck, but it also probably sucks for villain too. at least if you get raised you know what to do!

      as played i don't think it's bad either. a delayed cbet is nice because it reps a lot of strength, and you can also more accurately assess your fold equity (if you want a fold). if villain checks twice, then he is basically asking you to bet to take the pot away. so i think it could be argued either way - to play like you did or to bet/fold the flop. interesting to see what veriz says.

      Hello durinko,

      Either way it's fine, I don't mind Checking behind there, although you could as well Bet there cause there are still worse hands which pay you as FD and of course Jx hands.

      Best Regards.
