Am I supposed to bet again?

I open in the HJ with KsTc, very loose CO calls and very loose Button calls all others fold.

Qs8c3d...I bet and they both call. They are both very loose peelers. I'm discounting them having a Q but it is possible since they are both somewhat passive.

Qs8c3d6h....Should I bet again? Am I just done with this?

If the positions were reversed and I had position would it be better to check for a free card or bet again for a free showdown?

Re: Am I supposed to bet again?

Against two loose peelers, I am not inclined to c-bet KT on this flop. It's a pretty ambitious bet three ways OOP against even typical opponents. Sure, sometimes the loose peelers are going to be peeling with worse, but they are frequently going to have better and you just don't know which. Unless these are the type of players who basically only have suited connectors when they cold call, this just isn't your flop.

As played, I would not try again on the turn. And if you were in position, I would be checking the turn too, and planning to check or fold the river unimproved.

Re: Am I supposed to bet again?

I would give up on the turn. After they call on such a dryish flop, it's probably going to take 2 more barrels to take down the pot. And it's not very logical to try since they will likely be folding worse hands than KT and calling down with ace hi. On a lucky day, we can check down and win unimproved. More often, the turn checks through and we get to see a free river.

I like betting flop. They can fold small pairs and unpaired cards that have equity. On the turn I give up. Now they are weighted towards showdown value.

They are never folding a small pair on the flop.

Re: Am I supposed to bet again?

board is a little too connected with middle cards for me to cbet vs. 2 others OOP. id probably just c/f.

id bet if i was in position vs villains as i can get a free river often

This is a good point. I think I spew too many chips c betting in spots like this. This is more of the answer I should be looking for rather than looking to bet again on the turn.
