      MP3: $35 (70 bb)
      CO: $49.25 (98.5 bb)
      BTN: $25.50 (51 bb)
      SB: $68.10 (136.2 bb)
      BB: $43.06 (86.1 bb)
      UTG+2: $50.90 (101.8 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $50.75 (101.5 bb)
      MP2: $16.81 (33.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q Q
      UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, MP2 calls $1.50, MP3 calls $1.50, CO raises to $6, 2 folds, BB calls $5.50, Hero calls $4.50, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $4.50

      Flop: ($25.75) Q 7 J (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $18.25, 3 folds

      $25.75 pot ($1.41 rake)
      Final Board: Q 7 J
      MP3 mucked and lost (-$6 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$6 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$6 net)
      Hero mucked Q Q and won $24.34 ($18.34 net)

      CO stats: VPIP: 16, PFR: 12, 3B: 6, AF: 2,8, Hands: 10556

      On the flop, I was super torn.
      Now the situation is, CO is a fairly good player.
      All the other ones in the hand a uber saturday fish.

      Normally I'd check/raise here if I'm certain that at least one of them will bet, but the flop is SO drawy, that I just can't stop myself from betting, and pretty big too.
      I know that I send away lots of stuff, and that CO COULD have CBet there, but his CBet is 65 and in multiway on such a board, I don't see him CBetting much, except for actual hands like AQ, AJ, KK, AA, and the like.
      And if he doesn't CBet, I can't even count how many scary cards I can see on turn.

      So at this point I just hope someone has a set, a twopair, a high queen, overpair, or that fish will call on some draw, and I proceed with my bet.

      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      Hand looks ok to me. On the flop you don't need to bet big in order to have <pot-sized-bet on turn. ($5 only in fact). If you are worried about people hero folding, you could maybe bet $10 to encourage calls, and still comfortably get your money in on the turn.

      It's just an alternative line to consider though. The hand looks fine to me.
