      I lead the flop because I did hit. The fish calls me. On turn and river I decided to calldown because he had an AF turn of 4 and an AF river of 3, and being bad I he could totally lead out with a middle pair i supposed. No reraise to keep the bad hands in his betting range, and my hand isn't good enough to play a big pot. Right?

      Lead flop bigger, bet pot. Fish are calling at least once with any K,Q,J or T. But turn i think is fold. I am not sure is it b/f or c/f. Its 3way and one player is left to act after him and i think he has at least 2pair and you are spliting with any other ace.

      I allways lead flops around half pot in limped pots. People never fight for those pots if they didn't hit anything good (which is close to the definition of fold equity here) but as I do it quite often I need good odds, achieved with halfpot. Of course I'm betting way stronger in raised pots (I almost never play limped pots). You're right about the turn reraise, I should've fold there.

      b/f turn
      Fishes won´t really never bluff there and mostly has two pair or straight
      If you b/f turn you also don´t have to c/c river
