Default Bet top set? QQ on moderately coordinated board

I'm known for c-betting at this table. Its 55 minutes into a Party 10+1 freezeout. I thought if I didn't bet this flop it would arouse suspicion and also give someone a free card to possibly hit their flush (or outside possibility of a straight). What do you think of the bet?

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t50 (10 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

MP3 (t2490)
CO (t3120)
Button (t1460)
SB (t655)
BB (t1182)
UTG (t5020)
UTG+1 (t345)
Hero (t2438)
MP1 (t640)
MP2 (t882)

Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t150</font>, <font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, CO calls t150, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, BB calls t100.

Flop: (t475) 7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets t300</font>...

I think it's fine. Definitely want to charge the draws here against 2 opponents. Might be worth checking occasionally if you were heads up, but 3-way I'm almost always betting this and hoping someone gets frisky.

nothing wrong with it based on your past play. can argue for a larger bet and maybe even a smaller bet. A smaller bet would definitely look suspicious. a larger bet could very possible run everyone out, so i think you picked a good value bet size.

They all folded, didn't they?

How big were your c-bets? Personally mine are 1/2 pot, so i'd be betting 1/2 pot here, hoping the BB called with A7-8, something like that, or one of these guys has the Ad, read my bet as a bluff, and push into me. If your c-bets were bigger then your bet here is fine... but then, wouldn't your c-bets be a little too big (separate issue)?

That's a great question pete. One thing I really enjoy is not being able to be read easily (or so I believe). If I do the same thing over and over methodically how do my opponents know if I'm bluffing or not? Ideally, they don't. I almost always bet 2/3 pot on the flop as a c-bet. CSC turned me on to this as it makes drawing more painful for my opponents.

If you are always cont betting then cont bet here too.

If the fold show it, might help you take down some pots later when you whiff.

Also, if Lloyd is at the table, type in the chat "I only bet with the goods"
