      Fairly standard hand I think, Pre-flop I could have been stronger. Figured that I was happy to play with hand multi-way & in position.

      Post I tried to extract max value, didn't bet river due to over-card. Was this a mistake?

      Could I have bet more on the turn, more like 2/3'ds?

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Rather isolate with such a hand than just limp in.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet the turn bigger for better protection. You are just giving great odds for a Call.

      Best regards.
