      Hi,
      Flop - Should I c-bet at all on this flop vs 2 opponents?
      Turn - Playing check/fold, right?
      River - After he checked the turn, decided to make a smallish bet and play bet/fold. He had $4.07 left, I thought that he can shove with air if I check. Is this good play?

      Thanks!

      I would just c/f this since it often hits their range. After he called cbet I would just give up

      I don't like cbetting on such a board against two opponents .
      Even if non of them improved his hand to a pair or better the board is drawy and you will get called too often to make a cbet profitable.

      As played I'm just giving up playing C/F. Your FE is very low considering he his a fish a has a small stack, so just C/F the river.
      You don't have to win every pot that you played in, even if you have the best hand there is point in betting cause you are only getting called or raised by better hands.

      p.s.
      fold to cbet% can help us in some cases to decide whether to cbet or not. (In this case I wouldn't bet even if they have high %)

      Maya, you're wrong here, he had AK :)
      Normally I wouldn't bet on the river, but against this player I thought he is capable of both laying down a better hand and calling with a worse hand

      How is a player capable of calling with worse and folding better ? Makes no logic at all.

      He can call with AK (as he did), because he fell in love with this hand. But fold some busted draw with a low pair, like A:diamond: 5:diamond:

      That`s a way overstatement. I really don`t think this will ever happen. A player who will call down AK because he fell in love with it will also call with any pair.

      I would not bother cbetting on such a board against a loose opponent, especially in a multipot. You got lucky this time that he had trash and even called the river bet. If you want your cbet to be profitable in the long run, then don't bet on such a board with these opponents. If you like to gamble, then woohoo! :D
