      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      MP1: $3.90 (78 bb)
      MP2: $5 (100 bb)
      MP3: $2 (40 bb)
      Hero (CO): $6.98 (139.6 bb)
      BTN: $3.54 (70.8 bb)
      SB: $10.26 (205.2 bb)
      BB: $3.03 (60.6 bb)
      UTG+2: $8.13 (162.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5 5
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN folds, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 8 6 A (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.28, SB folds, BB calls $0.28

      Turn: ($1.01) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.01) 6 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      The villian is a fish. I only have about 30 hands, but the stars are 82/29/4.6.
      Only 25% fold to cbet.

      I decided to Cbet, but as he called and the tur hand was a K, there a a lot of hands he can have better than mine, so I decided to quit the hand, and go check/fold until the showdown.

      Was this a good spot to Cbet?
      Should I 2nd barrel the turn?

      I wouldn't cbet this board, the reason is simple, we are against 2 opponents and I don't think that our fold equity is high here. Against one I would cbet it, but in 3way pot I'm just check/folding.

      Hi,

      since it is very dry board I like your c-bet. BB would not fold better hands, but SB would easily c/f all the worst hands besides Ax and since 55 is ahead against close to 100% I think c-bet is profitable that spot.

      board: A86
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      55 50.22% 297,852 6,983
      90% 49.78% 295,165 6,983

      Once you get called I would likely just check it down- if you barrel he may fold there 8x or 6x hands, but at the same time he may c/c once again and then you don´t really if you should barrel river or not. So it is always better not to bluff fish out and mostly only bet for value

      best regards,

      Why do you say that BB will not fold better hands and SB will fold worst hands besides Ax?
      Is there any difference between them?
