      iPoker - £0.50 NL - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (SB): £58.89
      BB: £66.38
      UTG: £9.49
      MP: £34.32
      CO: £23.07
      BTN: £165.55

      Hero posts SB £0.25, BB posts BB £0.50

      Pre Flop: (£0.75) Hero has 7:spade: 7:diamond:

      UTG calls £0.50, fold, fold, BTN calls £0.50, Hero raises to £2.50, fold, UTG calls £2.00, BTN calls £2.00

      Flop: (£8.00, 3 players) Q:heart: 2:diamond: 9:club:
      Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN bets £5.00, fold, fold

      Should I CBet here? BTN Limp Call so he probably doesnt have much but the reason I didn't is the fish in UTG.

      Hi,

      UTG's stack size, thats why i would only complete from sb. When you raise 77 you will often find yourself oop facing 2 opponents (one of them pot-sized bet left) and overcards on the flop.
      As played i would c/f flop aswell.

      I prefer a flat preflop also, the fish isn't going to fold and it's not a nice spot being OOP with overs on the board.
      I think check/folding is fine.

      I would likely also raise with 77.
      Since you can c-bet some boards, others c/f line is also fine and you create bigger pot quite strong hand against weaker players.
      c/f that flop is fine. You likely ahve to fire two barrels to make BU or UTG fold 9x or draws
