IMO it's not the bluffs you want to c/r on the flop, it's the value hands that you beat. So, going for a c/r isn't so bad, especially with 3 left to act behind.
Admittedly, I normally lead in spots like this though, because we've got all the cards, so it's harder for anyone else to have a piece of this.
Hope you don't mind me adding (subtracting) to your thread F4STFORWARD, but here's a hand from yesterday. It was the second orbit on this table and it made me think of you. No reads, apart from they are both playing with short stacks and they both limped/posted out of turn checked (nuff said). Because I'm a lot like you (awesome) I flop two pair.
No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed)
Hero (BB) ($53.84)
: Hero is BB with K
UTG (poster) checks, MP calls $0.50, 3 folds
, Hero checks
: ($1.75) K
, 9 (3 players)
Hero bets $1.25
, UTG calls $1.25, MP calls $1.25
: ($5.50) 5 (3 players)
Hero bets $4.50
, UTG calls $4.50, MP calls $4.50
: ($19) 6 (3 players)
Hero checks, UTG bets $6
, MP calls $6, Hero raises $41.76
, UTG calls $7.75 (All-In), MP calls $17.33 (All-In)
Hero had K
(two pair, Kings and nines).
UTG didn't show Q
MP didn't show 6
I figured they must be calling with something, so I went for the c/r on the river to get it all. Fortunately they had such a big piece (essentially coolered) they willingly obliged. With the BD flush making it, I didn't want to lead overbet river.
