      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with J :diamond: A :club:
      UTG calls $0.25, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.25, 1 fold, SB calls $1.15, 1 fold, UTG calls $1

      Flop: ($4.00) 5 :club: K :heart: 3 :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $2.25, SB calls $2.25, UTG folds

      Turn: ($8.50) K :club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $5.00, SB raises to $11.50, Hero folds

      Openlimper = a fish. SB = unknown.

      I wanted to ask what you think about the cBet here on this flop with this hand. I am not sure it is OK, especially if there is a loose guy in the hand as well.

      I just thought that the reg, knowing that there is a loose guy left to act, has a more difficult time calling me light, I think, whereas vs the loose guy's openlimping range I ought to be doing well.

      The 2nd barrel is probably terrible though. I thought at that time that because I cBet in a 3way flop I look so strong that I can rep a strong hand on the turn well, whereas the K makes him having a K less likely.
      What I don't like about the 2nd barrel though is the fact that his range for calling in a 3way flop is likely a bit stronger as well. Certainly a lot of Kx hands and sets. + even if there are some weaker hands in his calling range as well, I can't even know whether he is folding them since combo wise it is less likely that I have a K on the turn as well and he may convince himself that I am bluffing here or whatever.

      So yeah, those were my thoughts.
