      PF = I consider calling fine.

      Flop = call is ok. no reason to raise or fold.

      Turn = I though about checking but I didn't wanted to give a free card if someone was on a FD, but in the same time if I bet larger I had to fold to a raise anyway.

      How should I have played the turn here? Check and hope for a non-club and unexpensive showdown? Would a bigger bet on turn be better?

      Hi.

      I don't think you have multiple streets of value here. Given that this is a 3way pot with 2 other callers on the Flop, I think vs both of their combined ranges, I don't see how you are good here too often. KJ is closer to a check IMO, AJ is probably a value bet, QJ is definitely a check.

      Think about it here. What are the various categories of hands that both of them could have?

      1) JX
      2) flush draw
      3) set
      4) some sort of straight draw (no OESDs possible on the Flop)

      If we think about JX, AJo is definitely in their range, maybe they have QJs and JTs, and maybe J9s but there are more combos of AJ than JXs. You are ahead of flush draws, and you are crushed by sets.

      So when we think about everything added together, KJ is a very borderline bet here. Now when we get raised, this is a snap fold.
