      Hi,

      Is this contibet ok? They are both pretty lose and their fold to cbet is 55, 37, they are also smallstackers.On the other hand the flop is very dry, and my hand can improve on later streets.

      Hey BotiaKiraly,

      It's useful to check if villains are not folding period, or whether they are just not folding the flop very often. If it's the latter you can usually cbet here and fire a 2nd barrel on decent turn cards.

      If villains are huge calling stations across all 3 streets it's probably better to check flop.

      Also since you are going to 2nd barrel often, it's fine to bet a little smaller on the flop. Nothing wrong with encouraging a slightly wider range to reach the turn so you can bluff vs that range.
