      So I pick up queens and bet 2.5x from the btn. Pretty wet board so cbet after it is checked to me.
      Another J on the turn which brings in FDs some SDs and could possibly give villain trips. So I check behind for pot control, is this okay???

      Hi Zach,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think we should cbet larger on this flop and the turn is one of the worse cards.
      The question is: can we get value from worse or can we make better fold? I think the answer to both is no.

      So checking back is our best option.
