      villain seems loose but I thought I had to CB on such a dry board.
      I think turn play is terrible, should I have bluff shove even Q or K is his range.
      I thought I had still"value" gut shot but I didn't want to shove,
      but I notice K is scare card so if fold turn, I shouldn't CB..

      Well it is good you pointed it out yourself Gonchan because the Turn is terrible yes ;) If you think you have equity, you are better off semibluffing

      You also didn't sized it well as I mostly want to be all-in on the Turn unless I have a Queen. So the Flopbetsizing should be higher to make the Turnpot bigger so you can shove under PSB
