      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:


      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T, A.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.85) 9, 8, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, CO calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.85) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.00, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.85.

      he is unknown,
      its monotone board but its connected so I shouldnt CB here?
      if its like 38T or 26Q of monotone flop ,I can CB?

      Hi Daisuke,

      I agree with you that here, especially OOP our cbet is not that great especially because villain looks fishy (check his shorter stack size so he isn't fully unknown).

      So my plan here is to check fold.

      On less connected mono boards, OOP, we may still not be able to cbet bluff (without much equity) vs fishy guys. Against regs it's a different story because you shouldn't expect to get floated so light.

      Keep in mind four things when looking to cbet:

      1) positions
      2) board texture
      3) villain(s)
      4) our equity in the pot
