      So this was took from my first shots at NL10, and i'm kinda unsure if the c-bet is okay there. I was ready to fold later streets if another club hit however.

      And ofc, i have np folding after both villains raised. Question is about that c-bet. Is optimal or a check/fold should be more suitable? Having position over one player, and oop over loose btn?

      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players

      Stacks: (VPIP/PFR/Hands)
      UTG ($10)
      Hero ($11.24) - (13/7/15)
      CO ($4.29)
      BTN ($14.52) - (87/7/32)
      SB ($13.30)
      BB ($6.16) - (40/13/15)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is UTG+1 K:heart: Q:spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.35, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.35, 1 fold, BB calls $0.25

      Flop: 6:club: K:club: J:club: ($1.10, 3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, BTN raises to $3.50, BB goes all-in $5.81, Hero folds, BTN calls $2.31

      Turn: J:spade: ($13.52, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: Q:club: ($13.52, 2 players, 1 all-in)
      This hand was mentioned in my blog on this post here.

      Cbet is fine I think. We get value from all one-club hands, and it's better than checking and allowing them to bluff us off what is likely to be the best hand.

      It also depends a bit on how aggressive the button is but when someone plays 87/7 I'd assume they are most likely loose/passive.

      Bad position + 3 way pot + no club means your top pair is close to worthless at this point. Check the flop regardless of your opponent stats.

      i guess my play here would be to bet/fold the flop.. but the cbet would not be too big.. maybe like half the pot..

      on the turn with the Js..

      bet/fold in case of a 3bet

      on the river with the Qc..

      small bet/fold

      I would usually c-bet unless players have been really active and would raise that board often with a lot of draws.
      then c/c or c/f is also fine depends how the action goes
