CO 42/33 wtsd 38 (37 h)
BTN 18/8 wtsd 38 (1k+ h)
SB 39/9 wtsd 25 (24 h)
How do I extract max value here?
my plan was to check to the original bettor, even if its multiway he may cbet because hes so lag, then if someone else called I'd call behind then plan to raise the turn. Would this be the best line to take?
As played, how is my sizing? Should I have lead in the first place?

Hi Praydk,

Id prefer leading out on a more wet board. This flop is great to x/c with a set, though I'd be more inclined to x/r if the original raiser bets and someone else calls as opposed to when we are HU. I think x/c here and x/r turns or lead for value on river if the turn was checked back is slightly better than a flop x/r because we might extract an extra bet OTT from villain .

With bottom set multiway, I usually donk out for half pot, in the hope a villain will raise, so I can 3-bet and stack off.
The flop check-raise kind of looks too strong, and effectively turns your hand face up as 2pr+. Check-call flop, check-raise turn also reps the effective nuts, but it usually wins an additional bet from villain.
