Another 4NL game and we are shorthanded (only 4 active players).
I open Jd Qd from the CO and both blinds call. I have them both marked as fish/calling stations.

The flop comes 6c 9s Th and it checks to me.
My question: should I C-bet here as a semi bluff? The changes of them folding is very small and I only have Q-high...

The short answer - it depends. 

Long answer - it depends on (1) your perceived hand strength, (2) your opponents' perceived range strength, (3) fold equity, and (4) drawing hand equity.

Against 2 calling stations - check and take a free card in position. Against fit-or-fold, semi-bluff to maximize fold equity + drawing hand equity.

As played, if you c-bet the flop you should double barrel the turn; however, since you didn't c-bet and they both check twice, you should bet the turn.

As these were 2 calling stations, the check and take a free card option was a good decision then.

Thanks for the answer Alton
