Didn't really think through this hand was more like, got top 2 pair, not folding lol. I would expect villain to be more aggressive because its blind vs blind. Dont think he has AK here cuz of bet sizing, think he either has missed flush, 34 or 55, 22, 66.

      I think you should bet bigger otf ($0.80+)

      No idea why we are x/calling turn. More draws came in and i'd expect him to check back with a lot of hands that we are vulnerable against.

      I also think we should bet/fold river. It just gives us better information to work on.

      As played I think we should call since our range looks capped.

        In a multiway pot I feel people will be less likely to start barreling off on weaker hands, draws or bluffs so I think that both either betting or x/c turn will be fine plays as we still have so much equity. I prefer betting as a default which allows us to valuebet river for halfpot and fold to a raise.

        Considering the dry flop texture and the fact that we already have clubs it is less likely for villain to get to the river with a hand that needs to bluff here. As villain's range that gets to the river should be pretty strong (sets, backdoor flushes) on average I would strongly consider check/folding river as played.
