      Hero did not bet on the turn since he expected that someone in 4-way pot would bet (hero's line was c/r). Well, hero was really surprised of the overbet and it was easy push (since at least one of the villains would call).

      Was hero's line correct?

      I'd say yes.. if you'd have bet, any non flush would be scared of the 3rd flush card, so you make way more vallue checking here.. also go for the c/r, and not c/c since ppl put in their money faster on the turn, than on the river.

      You should bet with a made hand on the turn, there's a risk they might checkbehind turn and if they have a set and make the fullhouse river, you will give them your stack for free.

      Yes I'd lead bet turn too, they may be drawing/have a set/a pair/two pair that would probably call turn bet but CBH given the chance.

      I like to bet flop, it is better imo than c/c flop, c/r turn if you improve.
      If you lead out flop and improve on the turn, then often players don´t put you on flushdraw and you get paid, but if you c/c flop, c/r turn, then a lot of times other players would fold.
