      Not a mistake in my opinion, this is a flop where you really can't afford to give away any free cards.

      I'd be happy to stack off vs SB as he only has ~50c behind, but would fold if MP plays back at me. Luckily you get to see how MP reacts to your bet first, then you see SB's action.

      standard c-bet for value. I would b/c against SB and would b/f against MP. If you check you can never be sure if someone is bluffing or valuebetting better hands so it is usually better to bet yourself.

      best regards,
