      The problem on this flop is that you're facing an overcard and you're in a pot against 2 players, so there is a decent likelihood that one of them has something that beats you - like a Q oder a 5 or whatever.

      If you set a continuationbet of 0.90$ you definately can't fold here. Due to the higher stack of 23BB you still have 19BB at the flop left (1.9$).

      There are 3 possibilities here:

      1. make a continuationbet that is just a little bit higher than half the potsize (like 0.60$ or 0.65$ or 0.7$ and fold to a shove of them.

      2. make a continuationbet that is just a little bit higher than half the potsize and go broke against their 3bet

      3. check the flop behind

      Against total unknown guys here I'd definately take the check behind here to see what happens at the turn and at the A on the turn you have an easy checkfold now :) .

      So just take the check behind and don't make your cbet in this case!
