      I wouldn't hate a c-bet there if villains are very loose, in position with 2 overs and a backdoor flushdraw as well as good barreling cards that can come, decent stuff can happen even if we get called on the flop. Checking back is fine of course.

      I don't think the turn changes much of anything unless somebody hit a K, most of the time they're not folding any pair to just one bet regardless of the K coming in. I'd either commit to firing the river as well or just try and see a showdown with AQ-high.

      As played on the river without reads on BB it's hard to say. He might have slowplayed a set or hit two pairs along the way, I doubt he's valuebetting a K by donking the river few players will actually do that. I guess it's possible he had clubs on the turn and he's now bluffing the river but I don't think that happens too often when he makes it 2/3 pot. I like your fold.

      Hope it helps.
