      Hero ?


      On turn:
      - Check/Fold? Even though the pot is nearly 2X my stack?
      - Check/Call? Sounds interesting because I won't drive worse hands from the pot.
      - Push? Which hand that I can beat would call?

      I think that probabilty that anyone is holding an Ace is very high, so check/fold seems to be good idea.

      It's very player dependant but a lot of the better Ax hands that might have peeled the flop would have raised PF. I'd expect to see 9x/Qx for a pair+ quite often here . Such hands might want to see a SD cheaply so I'd just check and fold unless someone is pretty nutty and is likely to bet missed :club: s etc. You are almost priced in to draw for your FH/split-pot after all.

      you could have check-raise All in that flop in my opinion

      I think c/RAI in a 6 player pot is the best way to get it all-in asap

      Now I give up on the Turn against 2 players, pretty sick table imo but yeah nothing you can do about the Queen.

      Best regards,
