      Firstly a little background - I had open 3 hands on the trot and this was the fourth so I guess i was always going to get called light.

      Did I play this ok, should I have given up sooner?

      Known Players:
      UTG2: $10.00 - 100 bb
      UTG3: $14.58 - 146 bb
      MP1: $15.26 - 153 bb
      MP2: $7.15 - 72 bb
      MP3: $16.18 - 162 bb
      CO: $10.00 - 100 bb
      BU: $3.18 - 32 bb
      SB: $3.90 - 39 bb
      BB: $7.93 - 79 bb

      0.05/0.10 No Limit Hold'em (9 Handed)
      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.1.116.1

      Preflop: Hero is UTG3 with A:diamond: , Q:heart:
      SB posts small blind ($0.05), BB posts big blind ($0.10), UTG2 folds, Hero raises for $0.40, 2 folds, MP3 calls, CO calls, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.35 - 13.50 bb) J:club: , T:diamond: , 5:heart: (3 Players)
      Hero bets $0.67, MP3 calls, CO calls

      Turn: ($3.36 - 33.60 bb) 9:heart: (3 Players)
      Hero bets $1.68, MP3 calls, CO calls

      River: ($8.40 - 84 bb) 7:spade: (3 Players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $13.43 and is all in, CO calls and is all in, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled back ($6.18)



      Thanks

      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.
