      FLOP
      Not the best flop for my hand, but after they both checked, I can bet for value. If called, proceed cautiously.

      TURN
      Board got worse, easy bet for protection/value, as played.

      Hey dienaszaglis,

      No need to cbet the A-high flop, fine to check back and evaluate on the turn.

      Vs 2 checks on turn betting for thin value is the best option.

      Well played.

      Hi!


      I agree, checking back is fine. But would you consider betting the flop as a mistake?

      Multiway on Axx boards, usually.

      On this specific texture vs two opponents who might be bad, I think betting is actually ok. They might call with any pair, + there are a ton of draws out there. It could easily end up being a better option than checking imo.

      You could even bet two streets for value on safe turn card and then check the river. Sometimes you will value-own yourself vs an Ace, but if these guys are bad enough to call down with any pair or draw you should make a profit overall.
