Default The one where I have Ace high and 2 opponents on the turn

UTG is 50/15/1, Button is 37/15/1.1

I'm lost on every street anymore. I bet the flop, but I know now one's folding. Any draw, overcards, or pair is calling. Seems like the bet is mandatory, but I get no info out of it.

So, I'm at the turn with 2 opponents with Ace high, which seems to be the case much of the time with big aces. Do I lead the turn with ace high into 2 opponents?

They're passive opponents, so I can fold to a raise, but one just calls. Now what on the river? If I lead, what's going to call I still beat? If I check, am I calling a bet?

I'd check and let UTG bet his busted draw, though a bet could be prudent, especially if he has a high WTSD.

I like check/calling here, induce a bluff from a whiffed draw to overs, straight or clubs. No one is folding a pair, and a bet may get a draw to fold.

Ok, 2 votes for check/call on the river. Which is good, that's the way I was thinking when reviewing the hand (sadly, not what I actually did).

What about the turn though? Is that an normal lead into 2 opponents on that board or are there other lines worth considering?

Well both are loose but not too aggressive postflop, and you could very well have the best hand with AK and don't want to give the draws a free look. I think betting is the right move, and you can fold to a raise. I think they would have raised the river with top or middle pair, so a turn raise would be enough to convince me my 6 outs are probably not good vs these two players.
