When I turn a set, I need to make a standard value bet. With 2 opps in the pot, that's a 2/3 pot bet. I do not want to check, as it gets me no value and can let the opps have the correct odds to outdraw me.

On the river, with 2 opps left, I'm betting 2/3 pot, if only 1 opp left, then 1/2 pot.

Checking the turn and under-betting the river kills our value here.

Bet the turn imo. There's a case for check/calling river as played since it seems hard to get called by worse, but in a .10c game they call with worse, so betting seems fine. Preflop and flop are played good imo.

I was reading this article today and it helped, http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/articles/Bet-Sizing

Before reading it I would have checked or put in 20 or 40 chips, like you did.
After reading it, I would have put in 80 to 90 on the flop and 150 160 on the turn.
I hope this helps.
