      Decided not to CBet because I felt like in a 3way with those people, an A was very likely to be lurking behind the corner, or should I say behind their computers. Should I have CBet? For backdoor power maybe?

      On turn I payed the FD.

      On the river I called due to K+low size but now that I see it, I probably shouldn't have. But I thought of a possible TT or JJ, even QQ sometimes.

      I think turn call is close because of a paired board but you prob get good enough odds IP.

      River is a fold though. He bets many Ax like that to lure you into calling for than Ax. Any Ax is a split btw so he prob bets small like that with better than Ax hands so you call all Ax and possibly worse.
