Correct Time to C-Bet?

$.02/.04 Online 6 Players
Effective Stack Size: $4.09

Hero is on BU with :AH: :QS: .
Hero raises to $.12. SB and BB calls.

Pot: $.36
Flop: :2H: :KH: :QD:
SB checks. BB checks. Hero bets $.1. SB calls.

Pot: $.56
Turn: :JD:
SB checks. Hero checks.

Pot: $.56
River: :7S:
SB bets $.28. Hero folds.

My guess is that I made a mistake c-betting on a semi-wet board into 2 other players with only middle pair but it doesn't hurt to double check.

    Why are you folding the river here?

    You only need to have the best hand here 25% of the time to call. There are plenty of hands that you beat that take this line. Villain could be betting here with AJ, worse Qx, JT, missed flush draws, etc.

    I don't think you can justify this fold unless you think villain is only ever taking this line with TP+.

    Oh no, don't fold!

    Oh, and I don't mind the cbet, but I could go either way. Just make sure if you're checking back MPTK here that you're also checking back some Kings as well sometimes.
