      I thought it was a nice example so here it is. There is a straight draw possibility on board, but after they both checked 2 times I don't think we have to worry about that.

      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ BB (10 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from (Format: 2+2 Forums)

      UTG+2 ($1.90)
      MP1 ($9.95)
      MP2 ($11.05)
      Hero ($2.25)
      CO ($10.10)
      Button ($9.05)
      SB ($13.43)
      BB ($11.65)
      UTG ($9.55)
      UTG+1 ($2)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q:heart: , A:diamond: . SB posts a blind of $0.05.
      [color:#666666]4 folds[/color], MP2 calls $0.10, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $0.5[/color], [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], SB (poster) calls $0.45, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], MP2 calls $0.40.

      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      SB checks, MP2 checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $0.8[/color], SB folds, MP2 folds.

      It is a close spot, if they really have nothing they both need cards below the 8, which is not all that likely.
      Still the King is a perfect Scarecard here on the turn and will win the hand often enough given the action before (check check)

      When I´m pre-flop raiser, could I make conti bet on the flop?, both players checked, so it should easy to take the pot:P You also have gutshot straight draw and two overcards so you could even go all-in when someone check-raise or calls your bet.

      I think the Q outs need to be partly discounted in this case because they complete the straight draw for any T. I wouldn't say it's a truly bad flop for a continuation bet in position, but a lot of connected hands hit that flop. The OP's line is probably better though.
