      Tricky spot.
      Not sure why I didn't CBet, I'm sure I came up with some reason in my head.
      On the turn I closed twopair but on such a board I felt like only better hands would call my raise, and there's plenty of them.
      Called river for odds and value from Ax.

      Flop you can check/fold, check/call or cbet. Depends on who is betting, how opponents play postflop. You can turn your hand into a bluff, can bluffcatch with it or might not be able to do either so you could just check/fold.

      Info on opponents is key to do anything here really. The easy and probably best way is to check/fold unless you know how to make money by cbetting and check/calling.

      As played, I think turn is a crying and very very very close call. It might still be -EV given that there were 4 people to the flop.

      River is just a snap fold, nobody bluffs 3 streets there, nobody value bets A9 or worse, you get owned by straight, sets and two pair.
