      Preflop: Hero is Button with 9:club: , 9:diamond: .

      MP3 checks, CO checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($1.95) 6:club: [color:#0000FF](3 players)[/color]
      MP3 checks, [color:#CC3333]CO bets $0.9[/color], Hero folds, MP3 folds.

      Final Pot: $1.95

      Should I have made a c-bet on the flop? I figured that with two opponents that were not in the blinds, it was too likely that one of them held an A and was concerned about a check-raise. Was the turn fold OK?

      Thanks,

      I'm not a SSS player (so please correct me if I'm wrong) but I think you played it well. A continuation bet only makes sense against one opponent. And even if you are in front it is not unlikely that you get caught by a flushdraw (maybe +overcards).

      Good luck at the tables!

      Well yea but his stack is around half the pot and none of the opponents showed any aggresion so i think a push would be best. He doesnt have to win the pot too often to make this profitable.

      Thanks for the feedback. The fact that my stack was only half the pot was the main reason that I wasn't sure whether I played it correctly. If it had been a K or Q on the board rather than an A, I'd likely have pushed for sure. I was concerned that with two callers, it was fairly likely for one to be holding an A...but maybe I was being too conservative. I just didn't see my hand being all that strong there.

      Thanks,
