Snowie recommends i lead this flop but as played i should call the over bet jam on the river. This is getting annoying saying snowie recommends lol but i just want to see if you all agree with this apps line or how i played the hands.

At 5NL, I don't think you should be trying too hard to play GTO. Snowie's recommendations are only optimal against Snowie's "GTO" ranges. Most 5NL players play nothing like Snowie (they don't semi-bluff half as often, for a start), so you should be exploiting their unbalanced lines.

Hey Mike,

With the villain making it 5x pre I expect him to c-bet his entire range, so I think we do better checking and letting him bet his air. Leading isn't bad, as he will continue with worse (66-TT) but he'll bet those anyway as well as fire with his unpaired hands, so probably more value letting him do so.
