      stack sizes?

      ch/c turn and donk river might be better. A ch/r (mini or not) looks too strong here and has no extra ev than just a donk bet or a ch/c.

      UTG is passive and might call a river bet but not a ch/r on the turn.

      Include everybody's stack sizes if possible, it's very important information.

      I like your 3-bet preflop even tho these guys have a small pfr% there should be value in it.

      Postflop assuming everyone has a healthy stack (if one of them is short we're going to get shoved on a lot more often) I would just c-bet that board since it's possible for them to fold low pocket pairs or random speculative stuff like 54 and the likes that totally whiffed and I don't expect to get raised off my overcard+gutshot outs by these guys unless they have me beat.

      As played on the turn and still assuming you're 100bb effective with villain I would either lead out or check/raising depending on how often I think he'll bet again. When in doubt I usually just lead out since I'd expect him to give up on bluffs sometimes and to check back any and all pair+draw hands he can have on the turn, so I like forcing the action better.

      Hope it helps.
