      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, J.
      CO raises to $0.20, BU calls $0.20, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.85, CO folds, BU calls $0.65.

      Flop: ($1.92) 9, K, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.50, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.92.

      i thought that in a 3bet pot he was going to have TT+ and AK AQ, of which more than 80% of his range had me beat. there was no need for a cbet.

      I would still prefer c-bet, since he can also call there lower pp-s, some low suited connectors and you can easily have there AA/KK/AK, so if he called pf QQ I think he would fold to c-bet
