      Full Tilt, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      UTG: $57.15 (114.3 bb)
      Hero (MP): $63.60 (127.2 bb)
      CO: $50.50 (101 bb)
      BTN: $14.20 (28.4 bb)
      SB: $48.45 (96.9 bb)
      BB: $53.45 (106.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J J
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.75, CO calls $1.75, BTN calls $1.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($6) 9 Q T (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $4.25, BTN folds, Hero calls $4.25

      Turn: ($14.50) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($14.50) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $10, CO calls $10


      On the flop I dont want to play b/f nor do I want to stack off. So I go for c/c. Is that ok? Should I bet the turn and wouldn't it be obvious what i have once I do? I plan to c/r the turn. I bet the river for value.

      I like check call on this flop texture, cause you are going to call a ton of second pairs on this board for two streets. And if the turn was blank i would still call and same with the river cause I expect him to bluff all busted draws. And we will see what type of player he is, like for example he got QK he bets flop and turn, and check backs the river this play makes his 3 barrel bluff on identical boards to busted draws or super strong holdings. So if he dosen't bet his pairs three streets he gets super polarized so to depolarize he should always bet three streets with TPGK.

      Problem with check raise on this flop I would say is that you looks superstrong
      and your range is capped.

      I think on the turn I like a lead. People dont like folding 2 pair to a donk and there is not many bluffs he can have. If he has a set he ALWAYS calls once and sometimes twice, on this texture its just so impossible for him to have air that will bet the turn as a bluff.

      Flop seems okand he will play pretty face up, plus we have additional equity.
