      Hello. I think UTG and UTG+1 are mostly weak so I'm trying to scoop dead money or isolate MP1.

      As played is this a good spot for cbet? I could get thin value from QT, Q9, K9, 88 but any Jx, JT, T9 beat me. There's not much to value from on turn so I'm giving up there. Thanks

      Hey JohnDoe1313,

      Preflop iso-raise is fine.

      I don't feel strongly either way about the flop. Betting is fine, you protect your hand and sometimes get called by worse.

      Checking back is an ok option too though. You are not worried about a Q rolling off and and you block some of the outs a Qx draw will have. This way you can bluff-catch on the turn. Vs a passive opponent maybe betting is better though.

      Turn + River are fine imo.
