      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J A
      Hero raises to $0.15, MP calls $0.15, 3 folds, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.47) Q 8 3 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.30, MP calls $0.30, BB folds

      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: ($1.07) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Villain is 28/16 over 26 hands.

      Is it fine to cbet on this board?

      As played, I wasn't really sure what to do on the turn. I figured I either just had to give up and hope to hit the straight on the river, or to triple barrel. I think barreling twice and then giving up wouldn't be that great, considering how drawy the board is and how many pair + draw type hands he will have if he calls the turn.

      So what's the best plan here? Fire once and then be done with it like I did, or just keep firing to try to get him off the weaker part of his range?

      Against two potentially weak opponents I prefer checking this board.

      On this turn I am fine with checking readless and my plan will be to check/call according to pot odds.
