      Hi

      I've just checked in equilab wheter my cbet was fine but it's kind of boarderline right? I guess TT bet is fine and x/f 99 (no blockers to broadways which won't fold)

      Hey,

      You have to compare cbetting to checking. Although you cannot get value with your hand, your bet can simply work often enough to win the pot (kind of like a bluff) while also you cannot check/call profitably against your opponent's range. Until you know his range for playing against a missed cbet, your cbet should be more profitable than check/deciding on such boards with weak hands.

      I would never x/c here but I was in doubt about cbet or x/f because a lot of broadways will continue

      There are not that many broadways imo. Like you said, you also block some plus, the reason Axx is great to cbet is that people fold just about all their air, which is a big part of their range, that's why this bet will just be +EV based on risk X to win Y basis.
