      i misplayed the flop here - should have just given up once it makes multiway on such a wet board. i wasn't counting my :spade: as a draw either obviously.

      as played, do i have a value bet on the river? i'm not sure if i will be called by Ax. maybe i will! i just don't know if people will be willing to call down since im the only aggressor. UTG at least is weak so he probably calls with his Ax. just wasn't sure

      Preflop is fine.

      Definitely check the flop here. Don't really expect to have a lot of fold equity here plus if we get called we are likely to stand really bad against their range.

      We hit the gin on the turn, so betting is obviously good here and I think your sizing is good as well.

      As played, I think we can value bet the river as well. I'd bet around $1.2-$1.3 here and fold to a raise.
