      Preflop I would fold on a 100BB table put not when almost 300BB deep in position.
      Is there any reason not to raise the flop here? I consider this a misplay in retrospect. Just looking for confirmation.
      Once the error on the flop is done, would it be better to just check behind the turn to get some value on river?

      - well if you don´t want to play for stacks being 300bb deep then calling down is reasonable, but consider how drawy is board I would likely still raise to build the pot

      - definitely bet turn and river for value. he would call you down with tp hands

      That was in the back of my mind. Usually a bit more cautious playing big pots deep against tight players giving me action. Against a fish I would always raise here. I just think this player could fold AK in this spot to a raise. I guess I could have gone raise/fold on the flop against this player considering the stacks?

      if he folds anything less that two pair+ then calling is better option imo
