Should this board be a c-bet? I nitted out here and checked with the intention of putting in a delayed cbet, which I would do some of the time if I had AK. SB is pretty fishy 53/7, not sure about my river call there but his turn bet seemed really weak and I didnt think he had the king, guess he might have hit his flush on the river. Another thing I am not so sure about is the size of the squeeze, I think I should have made it larger to $1.80-$2.

Hi pockettones,

I think yes. This is a spot where I think I prefer to cbet the flop because we are OOP against two opponents in a 3bet pot and the fact that no one 3bet preflop makes it less likely that they have AK combined with the fact that there are two Kings on board. However, I don't want to give a free card to two opponents with two clubs on board and I don't want to risk getting bluffed here. I think we can still get called by worse when we cbet the flop from hands like JJ/TT/99 and FDs. 3bet size I think is good. To call the river we need to be good ~ 20% of the time, I think when they bet the 3rd club that small it might be a thin value bet with Kx or a blocking bet with some PP. So we have to think about our opponents tendencies when we decide to call or fold taking into account that they lay us a good price to call when we have > 20% equity against their river bet range.
