      MP1: $5.00
      MP2: $5.06
      CO: $2.16
      Hero (BTN): $10.35
      SB: $4.88
      BB: $3.59
      UTG: $7.03
      UTG+1: $6.02
      UTG+2: $4.31

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with 8h 6h
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.45, 2 folds, CO calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.97) Th 6c 7h (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.50, CO folds

      I decided to 3bet here as i thought the CO could be stealing.

      the flop is draw heavy in my favour and im wondering if i should have checked in the hope to improve and induce a bet from the CO?

      Mmm.. isn't it too early to 3b. I mean unless u know he is a thinking player and he would fold some stuff like QJ, KJ, A2-AT, 22-TT and I doubt he is a thinking player when he has 40 BB. Don't give him any free cards on that board just bet/call.

      if you don´t expect to get c/r too often then I think betting is better than checking and trying to go to showdown
      he can fold worse hands, you don´t let him get free cards and you can continue strory that you have high overpair
