      You were a bit overplaying your hand, he could have anything of those cards on board, even some bb's like 77 or 99 that he didn't want to raise but wanted to play with anyway.

      I'd stabb once and check/fold, or even check/fold from the beginning.

      We still have an overcard + outs for trips on the turn, besides villain is also floating us wide on the flop with all sorts of overcards, especially Ax (Ax may even call the turn) + sometimes we get a weak pair to fold.
      There are often better spots for a stab than this one but this still ought to be doable, or close at worst.

      Let's wait for Veriz to confirm this.

      I would not bet turn for value/bluff. You have some showdown value, so I think c/c or c/f (with bottom pair c/f seems better option) would be better option.

      best regards,

      Do you always bet these bottom pair type hands in limp pots? It just looks kinda spewy to me. If it was top pair then it would be fine since you have decent kicker, but against this dude who is limping almost all of his pairs and broadway cards I just think check folding is better.
