      Board just hits his cold-calling range all over. I might consider not even cbetting here, unlesss MP1 is very loose/weak.

      As played I would probably c/f turn, he often has us beat here, especially with his bet sizing.

      I don't contibet this kind of flop against more than 1 OPP, and I'm discounting my outs to about 5 so you can't call anything but minbet here.
      Turn is definitly check/fold in my eyes.

      Agreed on the c-betting stuff.

      As played on the turn it's a check/fold unless villain is really loose in which case you could make an argument for bet/folding. These two options are nearly always better than check/calling, especially without very specific reads on villain.

      The river just finishes to kill your hand which was already in quite a bad shape on the turn, no use bet/calling there, just check/fold, everything beats you.

      Hope it helps.
