      OK, only one player that matters here. Villain - about 25/1/0.4, but only about 50 hands I think. OK, his AF is really low - but it also can be a sign of slowplay if he hit a set. Turn check was more about to see if he's trapping me - since any turn bet should commit me to finish this hand with All my chips in this pot - I'm not sure I want it here when I cannot beat a single two pair - especially on river. But still I feel I played it too passive. The main reason I was checking behind the river too - there was 4-way flop here, I complete missed my aces on all the board till the river, and villain showed a strength.

      Push turn?
      Big bet on turn, and push any river?
      Check behind on turn, and value bet river?

      I'm not sure about my turn decision, but I'm pretty sure I should have value bet the river?

      MP1 won´t c/c set on that board.
      I doubt that he would also play 2 pair that way.
      I would make 25$ valuebet on the turn and if he shoves then I call.
      No need to give freecards on drawy board.
      River: you´re ahead here 95%. Make 20$ valuebet and hope to get pair by a lot of hands.
