      Preflop you can consider squeezing if people like calling with weaker hands. Calling is absolutely fine as well, just something to think about.

      On the flop I prefer leading. People don't bluff cbet nor cbet for thin value as often enough multiway but will definitely call all their medium pairs once and definitely call Qx 2-3 streets.

      As played, I don't really know the best play. Donking river seems silly but it definitely has merits.. Check/raising turn I think will be overplaying your hand at NL25. I would do it at NL5 when people don't fold a pair but at NL25 people start folding to turn check/raises. I think check/call turn again and usually I would check/call river although I don't expect to get much value but nor do you get when you lead since most Qx are now folding.

      Had you bet yourself though, you would have made bigger sizing so you would have got better value. Don't check to the raiser as much in multiway pots.
