      Opponents unknown

      BTN: $9.21
      SB: $8.31
      BB: $28.26
      UTG: $7.18
      Hero (MP): $5.00
      CO: $3.43

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has K:heart: Q:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.15, fold, BTN calls $0.15, SB calls $0.13, fold

      Flop: ($0.50, 3 players) 7:diamond: 2:heart: 2:club:
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $0.36

      BTN wins $0.48

      I don't see a reason to bet here. I'm rarely connected with the board and all I can represent with the bet are PPs but opponents will not fold any pocket here and they even can call with strong ace. I even think it's not the best idea to OR KQo from MP.

      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $0.25

      This board connects with the hands opponents could flat (say, T9, 98, JT) so again I don't see a reason to bet here.

      P.S. Sorry for posting two hands, they are not so similar but here were doubts about cbets in both.

      Hello,

      #1

      I think we can go for a cbet here, but if we bet we have to consider betting most turn and river cards to represent a good hand.
      If our plan is to cbet the flop and then give up on the turn, then just check/folding is the best play.

      Since this board rather hits their range, I'd check here as well.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Against unk. ch/fold could be good, sometimes bet once to make 'em fold hands like QJ etc. We don't want them to bluff us out.

      Against someone who stabbs a lot we could go for ch/raise.
