Default PLO8 Tourny hand...

This is a hand from the Full Tilt daily 3k guarantee. Villain is playing hands like KJ22, so I guess he can have anything. I think preflop and flop are standard, but what are we doing on the turn? DIdn't see how the Q could've helped him, thought a big wrap or worse K was most likely, so my first instinct was to bet...

I'm in the cutoff, start the hand with 14k, and have him well covered. On the turn, he has 3100 behind...

Blinds 100/200

Hero: A [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]K [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]Q [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]3 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]

I raise the pot, bb calls.

Flop: K [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]Q [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]3 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]

I bet the pot, 1500, villain calls

Turn: K [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]Q [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]3 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]Q [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]

Villain (3100 behind, 4500 in pot) checks to me...

You raised and c-bet, so a check on the turn may appear suspicious. There is no card you fear on the river, right? Also, if you check the turn, you can still get villain all-in on the river, yes?

Seems like a clear check followed by a river bet if villain doesn't beat you to betting it. Give villain a chance to hit a worse boat if he has a Q, of hit a straight, or to be suspicious that you're sitting on naked aces. A turn bet should only get action from another queen here, unless villain is a first-class moran.
