      BTN: $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $5.33 (106.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5.07 (101.4 bb)
      MP: $4.95 (99 bb)
      CO: $4.45 (89 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K Q
      MP calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, MP calls $0.25, CO calls $0.25

      Flop: ($0.92) A 5 K (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($0.92) J (3 players)

      UTG 41/7 32 hands
      MP 30/3 32 hands

      In the flop i don't think the cbet agiant two weak players is a good move, they woulg probably call with Ax and flod weak hands, so i decide to do check / call and re-evaluate turn. Since the of them check flop, i enter betting river, off course they can steal have some weak As but i gain some draws.. Is this the correct play?

      I think flop check is OK. This is generally a decent flop to cbet as a bluff and that means when you more of a mediocre hand you cannot get value since your opponents fold so often.

      On the turn, the same logic applies. I think having so many redraws but having a hard time getting called by worse makes it great to check/call.
