      Should have bet out on turn?

      Was happy to take a free card with nut flush draw, but with top pair & kicker probably should have bet to protect hand & get value?

      Looking back on this hand, the turn play feels pretty horrible, even the flop could have been a raise?

      Known players:

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , K:club:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.18, SB folds, BB calls $0.13.

      Flop: ($0.57) A:club: , Q:heart: , J:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $0.57, Hero calls $0.57, BB calls $0.57.

      Turn: ($2.28) 7:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.28) Q:club: (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2.28

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows (Td 5d)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and queens (Ah Kc)
      BB shows (Ts 9c)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and queens (Ah Kc)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Against CO you can as well even 3bet, his raising range is pretty wide here.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, both plays are fine. While not that many worse hands will Call you on turn then Checking and taking pot control is fine. Although betting is an option as well to get value from Ax hands.

      Best Regards.
