      Hi.

      I think you played it fine. I don't like cbetting this hand vs someone who is folding so much vs flop cbets. If the board had slightly more draws then I would prefer cbetting so that we have more worse hands which can call us (and thus we would have more value).

      Example: AT7 -> All broadways will call, many of the middle cards like 98 or 68 may float us on the Flop as well so I prefer cbetting QQ here as opposed to cbetting on AT4.

      Thanks.
