      Player who called me had a VPIP of around 45%..

      I made the CBET knowing that he may have hit that flop due to his wide range but I was thinking to myself that it was most likely that he didn't hit the flop, I thought perhaps he was holding ace rag or king rag suited to call my raise preflop.

      I know my preflop play was fine, just wondering if I played it correctly post flop.

      just make it easy on yourself and check back multiway with only 2 overs. players at nl2 are going to be calling down with all sorts of hands here. just wait till you hit and value bet the hell out of them

      So you think cbetting is out of the question at NL2?

      "He may have hit the Flop due to his wide range"

      This is very subjective. How wide is wide? If he plays a 15% range with many broadways and middle suited connectors, then yes he would connect with this quite often with some pairs and straight draws.

      If he plays 100% of hands for example, then he is going to miss this anyway when he has his K7o or Q2s. So I would say it depends

      In a headsup pot I think the cbet would be fine with 2 overs and I dont think he necessarily connects that often. In a 3way pot I think someone has something way more often so I would give up here. I don't mind cbetting if you had the backdoor flush draw to go along with your hand so you can barrel another 20%+ of Turns if you do Turn a flush draw.
