      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed)

      MP2 ($13.85)
      MP3 ($4.75)
      CO ($24.35)
      Button ($26.15)
      SB ($13.95)
      BB ($30.70)
      UTG ($24.80)
      UTG+1 ($11.05)
      Hero ($5.50)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with T:club: , T:diamond: .
      UTG calls $0.25, UTG+1 calls $0.25, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1.5[/color], [color:#666666]5 folds[/color], BB calls $1.25, UTG calls $1.25, UTG+1 folds.

      Flop: ($4.85) 6:spade: , A:diamond: , J:spade: [color:#0000FF](3 players)[/color]
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($4.85) 9:spade: [color:#0000FF](3 players)[/color]
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($4.85) A:club: [color:#0000FF](3 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]BB bets $1[/color], UTG folds, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $4.85

      Should I have c-bet the flop since they both checked to me? I was concerned about a check-raise by someone with an Ace or that a Jack might be afraid to bet because of the Ace. Also obviously since it wasn't heads up. Also, should I have called the river? I considered it, but figured that I didn't beat much.

      Thanks,

      Since a contibet committed you to the pot anyway, you could also push All-In instead. BUT, the question is if you should do that. Lets see what would call you here on that board.
      a.) A Flushdraw would call you here I think
      b.) A Set (only 66 or JJ I think is possible here)
      c.) Two Pair would call you here (AJ or A6s is a good possibility here)

      Any other hand should fold here. So that being in consideration I personally would fold here, because I would have to believe that my Fold Equity is big enough.

      Most of the times (around 90% your play here was correct), so don´t worry about the way you played it. :)

      Good, thanks Berliner. You don't think JJ would've raised or re-raised pre-flop?

      Thanks,

      Hi,

      I only listed the hands in my mind would continue to play after you Conti-Bet on this Flop, so you are right about your thought that JJ, often would have reraised preflop.

      Hi Kknight!

      Nice hand sir! There are two overcards and two opponents: no need to risk any money.

      Good luck at the tables!
