      I was going for a passive play on flop, I didn't really think my top pair was strong enough against 3 and many possible turn overcards would be bad for me. The turn was good news for me and the river really ruined my hand, so I decided for a c/c, however I think that villain made a bad call with FD on turn. Any comments?

      burek2000 you have gift for BSS :D , nice hand.Good decision on flop being out of position and against 3 ops.Good turn,you did pot size bet for protection,some opps folded.River-you have made medium hand (two top pair+drawy board) and can beat pair,weaker A,draw,but still vulnerable to set,flush or higher pp(TT+ unlikely).In this situation you can c/c to induce bluff with weaker hand.You can also bet 1/2 pot size or little less when opp is passive on river and fold to raise (reads,stats).But nothing bad to go broke when you risk 9BB.
      Good luck. :)

      Wouldn't play it so passively. My standard line after hitting tptk on the flop (especially on paired board) is to bet pot. Of course, you need to back of if any overcard hits, but a single bet can stillbe enough to get rid of your oponents early.

      As played, bet pot on the turn and in my opinion push river.
