      In position that's ok if you won't pay off when a flush card hits on the river, and thus checkbehind when it would have hit or fold to big riverbets.

      I don't understand 100% what you mean; You're saying that my turnbet is OK because i'm in position, and as long as I'm done with the hand if a heart shows up (check behind river/call small bet) or if villain makes a big riverbet (fold)?

      Yup, as he wouldn't have had the implied odds to call for his flushdraw.
      You just gotta look at the turn that in total, you don't give him enough money when he hits a flush to make a call profitable.

      Agree with Sonic.
      If you decide to bet on the turn, which you should do, you should make it at least 5$.
      I would probably check on the flop, because board drawy and you´re betting against 3 opponents, which means that your fold equity isn´t that good.

      You agree with me, yet your argument says you'd do it differently.
      There's absolutely no reason to scare a flush draw out of the pot with a 5 $ bet unless you got a good idea that this particular villain is dumb enough to call any draw for any price. If that's not the case, it's more profitable to give him better looking odds for 3.5-4 $, but foregoing the implied odds he's counting on by folding to a large enough river bet.

      I agree with you on the flop c-bet though. There you need to check, or bet bigger. A check is usually better at this limit.
