# [NL2-NL10] QQ - check behind turn?

Hi Gerv,

I guess preflop, flop would be standard. Maybe I should´ve bet like pot on the flop because of draw possibilities. When the Ace hit the turn, I decided to check behind because I didn´t wanted to get check raised on the turn and then I´m not sure if shove would be profitable (and I think it wouldn´t). So when I check behind, I will check out the river and if the flush didn´t hit, I would probably go for small value bet or call some reasonable bet. If the flush DID hit, then I would bet bigger.

However as played - what do you think about turn play?

Then on the river I decided to just call the bet cause even though I´ve got the flush it is not nuts (I would shove if I had KK) and there is also full possible. As mentioned, if he checks, I would bet bigger then his 50c..probably round 65-75.What do you think about the river? Could he be just valuebetting me? I think it is possible. Question is if I beat most of his range which I still have trouble estimating correctly.
