      I didn't know what to do here. Do I bet for protection 3-way and hope for a blank turn? Can I actually check/fold my overpair here on the flop?

      c/f flop seems a little weak, since I don´t think you´re behind that often
      you can likely take b/f line against passive players, since I don´t think they raise too often without two pair+
      Turn is interesting. He would likely call with one pair hands but also flushdraws on the flop, so there is good chance that you´re still ahead on the turn
      But if you shove it is hard worse hands to call, so you can either c/c or c/rai depending if think either you´re ahead and worse hands would call or you´re ahead and worse hands would fold to shove
      Also since pot is huge, then it is hard to get free showdown, since he´d might bluff river, so you likely get called down anyway. So imo you can c/rai turn profitable.
