Spot I'm running into at 1/2. How should I range? What's the correct play?

This is a spot I'm running into a bit now that I've been grinding some 1/2 regularly.

I'm UTG and raise to 12. Two callers from mid position who have been stations and pretty fit or fold post flop. Big blind calls also and we get to the flop four ways.

Flop : 952 two clubs. I have Q clubs.

Big blind checks. I lead out 20 (the stations have been folding a ton in these spots so I felt very comfortable leading into them as I'm well ahead of there range. They both fold and Big blind shoves for $75 total. It's back to me $55 to call roughly $90 now in th pot.

Big blind is newish to the table. Definetly got a little gamble in him from my earl read.

How am I rangi this opponent ? What's my play?

Re: Spot I'm running into at 1/2. How should I range? What's the correct play?

I think you are getting a little ahead of your self in this hand. A useful rule of thumb is that about 1/3 of the time, someone will hit their hand on the flop. When you've got 3 villains, that means that 70% of the time they will have something even if they are fit or fold. Therefore, your cbet is going to be unprofitable, even when the amount is as little as you made it.

In your situation, my cut off for calling is around TPTK. I'll call more TP if the villain takes this line with FD a lot. I take it you don't have a pair of queens or raised Q9 in the UTG, so this is a fold, since you shouldn't have been cbetting in the first place. If you did have QQ or Q9, your flop bet should have been bigger.

don't bet $20 into a $49 pot

don't know your play because we only know one card

This.

If you have QcQx don't fold. Don't bluff c-bet with little equity into 3+ opponents ever.

practice posting hands better, or just donít post them at all.

needless to say, you need to learn when (and how much) to c‒bet in 1‒2 NL.

actually thinking while youíre in hands would be a good start.

fold, mathematically getting 2:1 isn't good enough with just overs & a backdoor flush draw. People shove draws a lot less than you think at lower limits.
