      I hit top pair with good kicker and I cbet 1/2 pot on this flop because I am also on a gutter for a straight, doubt any of them have AK in their hands and any two pairs would most likely raise me here and I can fold

      SB calls and I presume he was either drawing straight or has something he likes...even though I hit my 2 pairs I check behind because board is very very coordinated and he might aswell be trapping me now...so Ill just see the river and go from there

      since now my two pairs got neutralized I think the best option here is to check behind and go for showdown..doubt he would call me with anything weaker here...so much things that have me beat on this board

      Flop: We could argue for a bet or check here on the Flop, we probably cannot go for 3 streets of value anway.

      Turn: But as played we cannot value bet 2pairs for sure. With sets we could argue for a value bet but we can't be completely sure whether our opponent definitely calls with twopairs on the Turn or not.

      1) AQ - Assuming opponent calls Turn with every single 2 pair combo
      Board: JsAhKcQd
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 42.72% 31.66% 11.05% { AQs-ATs, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, AQo-AJo, KQo }
      MP3 57.28% 46.23% 11.05% { AQs, AQo }

      2) JJ - Same assumptions
      Board: JsAhKcQd
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 32.36% 28.16% 4.19% { AQs-ATs, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, AQo-AJo, KQo }
      MP3 67.64% 63.45% 4.19% { JJ }

      If these assumptions are always true, then you can argue for a thin value bet on the Turn. But if I give more conservative assumptions about villain's calling range and discount the weaker two pairs from his range, it would probably be a check.

      River: No way I would bet, we even lose to stuff like KQ and KJ now.
