I have a couple of questions on this hand
1, should I have Cbet here? I have 2 overs back door flush and straight.
2, should I have called the flop bet? For the same resions as above.
3, I see people talk about having good equity with back doors, could someone talk me through how they decide whether it is +EV to call/bet in these situations and explain the maths (if there is any)

Thanks for the help

I could understand a c-bet here. If they have a jack or better, it's likely a call. If not you take it down likely right there.

As played, if you felt opponent had one pair and an A or K on turn would give you the best hand, that's ok as well. I don't mind the call on the turn, if opponent doesn't have higher than a pair. If they do, then it's less in your favour.
