      In this 4way pot against these loose-passive looking players you can't really cbet as this board often hits their range which they won't fold and u only have 2 overcards + gushot. Effectively ur making a semi-bluff.

      I think it's good to see a cheap turn + river card and value betting if u hit, but be prepared to give it up if a draw card hits and they play back at you very aggressively.

      I would def bet the turn in much the same way you did as the 2 midstacks will often call u with FDs, Tx, Qx, weaker Aces; so even if they do occasionally have KJ it's still +EV (plus it also offers protection against FDs).

      If the SB 3bets here we are very often beat here, but I don't see him slowplaying hands in this spot - so that'll almost never happen.

      This is a very dangerous board, yes they can have draws but there are many two-pairs out there also.

      Maybe I'm making a mistake but I just call turn and potcontrol it here. If draws don't complete and they check river I put in a small valuebet.

      That said, I don't totally mind a small valueraise. I know full well they can have a ton of random junk in their ranges, just my current tilted frame of mind that auto-assumes they've hit this board well :D

      Turn is easy raise. You should be ahead enough times to play for stacks
