      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.
