      Hello p0rkus,

      Flop: Nah into multiway pot on such board I don't like Betting out since we didn't show any kind of aggression preflop so Check is fine.
      Turn: Since we hit our straight you can likely now bet out to protect from any 1card FD.
      River: But ye, since he is such a small stack you could even consider Bet/Call there but if you really are unsure and he has been more passive opponent then Bet/Fold is totally reasonable. You need to be 34% to be ahead to make the Call profitable.

      Best regards.
