      I think you played it well to make a thin value and protection bet on the turn.
      After his shove on river you have an easy fold for sure :f_thumbsup:

      I also think you played it fine as played but i also think that also checking OTT with the intention on value betting/ calling a small bet OTR is also fine but against a shove OTR you almost always have to fold..

      Flop plan was check/call? At this stakes players are generally passive and won't bet this flop, specially BTN.
      Check/call flop and then turn we do what? Check/call again? I think we put ourself into a spot OOP I don't like much.
      That said, I'm betting flop right away. They call too much and don't bet enough.
      As played, turn you have to bet. It makes no sense to let this go while you have a hand. 1/2 is quite small imo, something around 80% is better imo, polarizes your range after the flop check. You don't want to get called by two players with position over you here.
      cms idea of checking again with the intention of playing our hand as a bluffcatch is ok to mix up, but remember this players are mostly passive players.
      River shove, well just fold with no info.
