      Noone would slowplay set or 2 pairs on this flop, it's clear that I had the best hand on the flop, but how does King on the turn improve their range? Should I bet for protection or check here for pot control? I would certainly bet in heads-up situation, but against 2 opponents, what is better, I think it's close here.

      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      I think you played the hand pretty good.
      On the flop you have o protect your hand and you are most likely holding the best hand there.
      On the turn you play 4 pot control because you are playing against 2 opponents. But you have to be careful if a heart hits the river. It's likely that one of them is holding a FD.
      On the river only better hands would probably call your bet so checking behind is fine.

      bet more on the flop (1.5$)
      the K on the turn practicaly doesnt change anything and there are still lots of draws on the board and we likely to have the best hand .
      being 3 way its ok to check behind and see a river but i dont mind barreling again here
      river check behind is ok
