I think I played the river wrong of course but this was difficult to lay down for me what does everyone think? My first thread in this forum, thanks

Here's the mistakes in the hand:

1) Bet more on the flop. The pot is 50 cents, you should put at least 35 cents out there. There are flush and straight draws possible, so charge 'em!

2) Check behind on the river. This is a pretty big pot, and those 2 players have been calling you with *something*! They're not just check/calling with air. They were either calling with a draw or something that has you beat. If they're calling with a draw, they probably missed it and you couldn't get them to call 5 cents on the river. If they're calling with a monster, you will get check-raised all in. I check behind on this river every time to control the size of the pot. Remember, you only have top pair, and you want to avoid going all in with just a pair of aces as often as possible.

Definitely bet more on the flop and turn, make it atleast 2/3 pot especially when in a multi-way pot. Probably just check behind on the river, depending on your reads on your two opponents. If you're betting that river, there's NO WAY you can fold to the shove. You're simply getting too great of a price to call, if you were planning on folding to a shove you might as well just check behind.

3 easy steps to make this hand better

1. 3 bet pre flop to isolate and become aggressor
2. Bet more into that flop, you have bet less than the pre flop raise, giving draws the odds to chase which isnt good
3. Check behind on the river, you are beaten by a LOT of hands, so prevent swelling the pot on the river by checking behind

^^ this, easy check behind on the river just because AK easily does this all the way and will probably call your push. Maybe you get AJ or AT to call the river push but mostly hands that have you beat call and hands you beat fold.
