      I'm not sure about the bet for middle pair. Often the limpers have an ace. And I think the check/call on turn is fine... I think if you bet and he has the ace (which seems quite likely until his weak turn bet) he's at least calling you. and if he raises your turn bet, then you have to call with pot odds of around 2.5 to 1 to hit a spade a two pair or a trip which is between 3 and 4 to 1 (provided he doesn't already have a set or better two pair by that stage). So not so great in my opinion...

      do not bet the flop against 2 callingstations if it's no valuebet.
      here, your midpair is no valuebet i think. so check-fold flop.

      As played... nh

      Betting 2/3 here doesnt make any sense since an Ace hits their range more than yours.

      As played on the Turn/River, yeh standard with the odds in mind but its close.

      Best regards,
