      50% fold vs cbet
      444 hands

      BB: $20 (40 bb)
      Hero (CO): $52 (104 bb)
      BTN: $88.25 (176.5 bb)
      SB: $49.73 (99.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:heart: 9:club:
      Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) 7:spade: 5:diamond: 4:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero ?

      This is a pretty bad board to cbet.

      Mitigating factors
      -He folds quite a lot to cbets on the Flop
      -I think his preflop range is very wide and he will just check/fold a ton.

      With that said I still prefer cbetting better hands like broadways or stuff with backdoor potential. I don't mind either putting a delayed Turn cbet or just giving up immediately. But cbetting is not going to be a huge mistake in this exact situation vs this particular opponent.
