      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:club: J:spade:

      Flop: (56.5 BB, 4 players) Q:heart: 6:spade: Q:spade:
      Hero bets 13 BB, fold, fold, fold

      Hero shows A:club: J:spade: (One Pair, Queens)
      Hero wins 53.68 BB

      As I posted in a hand QQ sqeeze, I sqeeze smaller in order to get called more often and to bluff cheaper.

      Is my cbet size ok on this board? I wanted to play it as I hit Qx, and want them to call me, or that I bet small with KK+. I think they call mostly with PP, and miss this board.
      Also I think the bet size is good, because if first 2 players to act want to bluff raise they cant because they dont know if I hit Qx or have KK+, and plus they dont know what player behind does. So I think first two players should play mostly honest and fold, while IP player can bluff raise or float (but that would be obvious bluff raise). What to do if a player bluff raises, or if he calls and blank or scare card come?

      Your range should contain enough hands to defend with equity against a raise so that you are not worried about getting bluffed. I think cbetting 4way here is a bit ambitious, I would need very specific table conditions to do it and I would usually opt to check/fold. That said, I would probably cbet close to 0% in this situation after opening from MP. I expect people to just hit enough of the time that we are very unlikely to make money by betting on average, it's only a specific situation with calling stations or very fold happy players.
