      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 6:heart: , 6:club:
      MP2 calls $0,25, MP3 raises to $1,00, Hero calls $1,00, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0,75.

      Flop: ($3,35) 5:club: , K:diamond: , 7:heart: (3 players)
      MP2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($3,35) 5:spade: (3 players)
      MP2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($3,35) 4:heart: (3 players)
      MP2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $3,35

      I think i should bet the flop here. It's a dry board, only 1 high card, which i can represent with a bet. MP2 and MP3 are loose, but there's not so much hand that can call.
      If i check the flop, then i could bet this turn, cause it's a blank. I checked because i wanted to see a cheap showdown with my hand, but there are too many cards that i have to protect against (like 9,T,J,Q,A), so i should bet i think.
      Do you agree?

      I´d bet 2$ on the flop to take it down:
      - since you could have the best hand
      - if checked then mp2 or mp3 could bet and you may fold better hand
      - no need to give free cards.

      If checked flop, I´d bet turn the same reasons.
