      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: 102.6 BB [VP14 / PF10 / FC100 / Hands 21]
      BTN: 101.4 BB
      SB: 85.8 BB [VP87 / PF10 / FC67 / AF5 / Hands 21 ]
      Hero (BB): 193.8 BB
      UTG: 100 BB
      MP: 38.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: €0.07) Hero has K:heart: Q:heart:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 4 BB, fold, SB calls 3.6 BB, Hero raises to 16 BB, CO calls 12 BB, SB calls 12 BB

      Flop: (48BB, 3 players) J:heart: 5:club: J:club:
      SB checks, Hero?

      PF: I attempt a re-isolation, hoping to get the tight CO to fold a lot of his range and allow me to be heads-up with the fish, holding a relatively decent hand.

      F: Doesn't go to plan and the flop leaves me with air. The board is a relatively good board to c-bet as it's unlikely my opponent's hold a strong hand and I can easily represent AJ, QQ+ with a c-bet.

      However, should I be c-betting when the fish is still in the hand?

      I like it preflop. We can make CO to fold a lot, and then we are glad to isolate against the fish.

      When you get called by both of them I prefer giving up on this board.
