      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, Q.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $1.50, CO folds, BU calls $1.50, SB folds, Hero raises to $6.00, MP3 calls $4.50, BU calls $4.50.

      Flop: ($18.25) 7, J, 3 (3 players)
      Hero bets $12.50, MP3 calls $12.50, BU folds.

      Turn: ($43.25) K (2 players)
      Hero ???


      Villain is 26/14 AF 1.3 after 89 hands.

      Is c/f really only optimal play here? I can hardly see him paying me of with anything worse but at the same time such line is so exploitable if I am up against thinking opp. I was not sqzing a bunch so my percived range is on the strong side. Should I make smaller cbet like 9-10$??? On non K and A turns, stacks are getting in anyways right?

      Thnx for help!

      unless player decided to call pf KJs I don´t really see how he can have Kx in his range (except slowplayed KK)
      If you´re shoving that spot with AQ I think you should also shove for value QQ, but if you rather play passively then checking turn is fine, although I don´t think you can fold your hand, since he can still bet his draws and floats
      Another option would be bet smt like 12$ and then call shove
      This bet looks really weak, so he may easily get there all-in smt like AJ or at least call once more
