      Hey Rapier12,

      Cbetting is ok in this spot given your gutshot and overs + hopefully some fold equity.

      When you get 2 calls it's debatable whether you are going to have sufficient fold equity to make a second barrel profitable. It's true the 9 is a good card for you but it also hits your opponents' calling ranges somewhat. QK, QT, QJ, AQ, 78 etc.

      Betting can never be terrible just given your pot-equity, but it might be a better option to check and play according to pot-odds.
