      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $25.33
      MP3:
      $28.09
      CO:
      $22.31
      BU:
      $35.07
      SB:
      $28.17
      BB(Hero):
      $25.70

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      MP2 calls $0.25, MP3 raises to $1.25, CO folds, BU calls $1.25, SB folds, Hero raises to $4.5, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $3.25, BU calls $3.25.

      Flop: ($13.85) 9, Q, T (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, BU bets $8.25, Hero folds, MP3 folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $13.85.

      I figured out one of them must have hit this flop in some way and is not giving up. My outs might not be clean too, so I gave it up. Should I c-bet here?

      Are you playing without a HUD or just never posting any stats ?


      MP3 is isoraising the UTG limper from MP with a good 4bb+1 raise size, so i expect him to be quite solid and have a decent range of 88-JJ/AQ/KQ and some speculative hands sometimes when he calls your 3bet.

      BU will probably be less of a problem on that board if he is also a tag, as he likely doesn't have anything over TT/AQ or he would have 3bet the isoraise in position. Probably more the likes of 22-99, KQs and speculative stuff like JTs T9s.
      If he is a random donk he is gonna be a problem indeed, as he likely has any sort of pair + gs or pair + oesd that he isn't folding on the flop ever.


      Overall I don't think you can make both of them fold with just a c-bet often enough to show a profit unless they call your 3bets with a huge range of crap, which i don't think those two do here. Any decent hand like JT T9 KQ KJ AQ AJ 99 TT JJ could have hit that flop in a lot of different ways and will probably call at least once, and probably even shove over your c-bet right there if it's two pair or a set, to protect from all the straight possibilities out there.

      I'm playing without hud. I've been for some time, but I never had a samplesize big enough to draw some serious conclusions. And I don't think it's necessary to beat NL25.

      No argument there. Could help us to say a few words about the players tho, even over 10 hands, there's a decent difference between people who played no hands, limped 7 hands or raised 9 of them.

      c/f on that coordinated board is fine line to take
