      I openraise and go into a multiway pot. I cbet the flop for value and protection. Only UTG follows, and I check the turn, trying to induce a bluff. When he checks too, I bet 2/3 pot in an attempt to make it look like a bluff. Is this line okay or what was best to do? UTG may be a fish because he isn't fullstacked.

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I'd cbet around 13bb. It is quite a dry board and we are mostly getting called by weaker Ax so we don't mind to maximize our value here.

      On the turn I really don't like checking here. What bluffs do you think he might have when he called the flop here?
      I think we have an easy value bet here.

      On the river I like your bet, but once he shoves I would just fold here with no info.
