      I would probably bet flop even against 2 opponents.
      You raised UTG and players respect that.

      i think this is well played against 2 opponents, i wouldn't want to be raised and play a big pot with this flop as even a flush draw could raise you here and with the 2 overcards you'd probably have to fold...
      turn bet is good to see where you stand then i'd be in favour of a c/c on the river to let some bluff induce.

      I c-bet/fold here as its likely I have an A. As played, the turn bet sucks IMO. You can't represent an A here. Even AA/KK are not likely as you have to be concerned that s/o has a flush draw.

      but with the turnbet you can rep high kings betting for value..?

      or maybe weak aces. in any case, i think fold equity is decent with the turnbet, given the flop checks.

      sry if i sound like i'm criticising your decisions btw, i'm not! i'm just trying to pick your brains so to speak :) .

      Its good to criticize any decision as one has to think about hands ;)

      However, I don't think you get an A or K to fold. Your hand pretty much looks like you have a mediocre hand like a pocket: with an A or K you'd c-bet the flop. With air, you'd c-bet the flop. The point is that if we can't get better hands (K or A) to fold and don't get value from weaker hands, we shouldn't bet.
