      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 5 players) Hero is CO Q:spade: Q:heart:
      1 fold, Hero bets $2, BTN calls $2, 1 fold, BB calls $1.50.

      Hero wins $69.5 ( won +$21.75 )

      the guy had 90/30 after 17 hands, so looks quite fishy. Should I call turn or push is fine?

      It's fine, though I might call here and wait for him to bet again on the river, no matter what draw hit.

      yeah i think its obvious you're inducing bluff by checking the turn here after having called his raise because de 3 doesn't improve any hand here except 33 so you shouldn't be afraid to 2-barrel here, but maybe not for someone not paying attention or a random fish

      generally speaking, if you do c/c flop c/c turn, they check behind on the river with worse hands.

      if you do c/c flop c/c turn and bet any river, you might as well raise the turn.

      so, wp!

      I like how you played it.
      He might fold worse hands if you play bet/call turn, push river.
      If you c/r. he might put you on AK or even if he puts you on overpair, he would still call to catch his 5-outer or gutshot or any other draw that he has.
