      PokerStars - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $60.67
      Hero (SB): $51.00
      BB: $66.91
      UTG: $50.25
      MP: $66.52
      CO: $50.00

      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has K:spade: J:club:

      fold, MP raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, fold, Hero raises to $6.00, fold, fold, CO calls $4.50

      Flop: ($14.00, 2 players) Q:spade: 7:heart: K:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO bets $6.50, Hero calls $6.50

      Turn: ($27.00, 2 players) 9:spade:
      Hero checks, CO bets $13.00, Hero ??

      both vilains are rather unknown MP 30/24 f23bet 4/4, CO 18/11 f23bet 1/3, its not perfect sop to sqz, but I think its ok I have blockers, and EQ when called, OTF i do not see much point in cbeting most of his range is PP, and some SC and broadways, so by cbeting I only end up vs range that dominates me, but OTT its a bit tricky JT got there, 99 he olso could have played this way, and most weak tight players do not continue OTT with their bluffs.

      I think you should cbet. There is still value to be had in my opinion, broadways are always calling you. It also makes it less of a guessing game vs an unknown.

      This spot is very different than KK on A22r vs someone who is always folding PPs on this flop and only calling AX.

      As played, I think I'm completely lost on the Turn. You should note that there's a half pot bet on the River left. We still have a gutshot in case he is randomly betting.

      In general when I check the flop in these spots I am usually prepared to call 2 streets at the very least cos people are prone to stabbing twice a lot of the time.
