      Kinda back to basics here, im not sure if i c-bet too much, so just checking a few spots.

      didnt have a HUD and was playing 15 tables, so my reads wernt that good, i didnt think BB was the type to check raise, they were both playing 2 tables and werent doing anythin out of line.!

      Hey loKKK,

      Sometimes these spots are a matter of style rather than there being a correct option.

      Personally I would not cbet here. The pot is 3 way so you possibly have less fold equity. Pocket pairs are not folding - the hands that are folding are mostly ones you beat. If you hit a J, A, it may be tainted.

      Some players would advocate a cbet. The board is somewhat dry, and you represent more strength betting into a 3way pot. You don't expect to fold out better very often but you may improve or hit a nice barrel card on the turn. It would be a lot nicer if the flop had at least one .
