      I may even consider bet/folding the Flop. I don't think people c/r the Flop light in multiway pots at lower limits. This guy is a nit, which makes his range more weighted towards pocket pairs. We also have the Qh, which prevents him from having QhTh AhQh KhQh in his c/r semi-bluffing range, as well as QTs with the gutshot.

      But I think it's fine to not fold a hand as strong as SB. On the Turn, standard is to check back cos sometimes people just randomly c/r here. But I think a 1/3 pot bet on the Turn for induce/thin value is also fine if you think he plays straight forward and would never have reason to play tricky, and of course we are calling a check/raise here if we bet.
