      On the turn I checked behind for pot control, basically with the intention of calling almost any river bet. The Q of clubs was pretty bad though, because it completed a flush draw, a straight draw, and put an overcard to my pair. Plus he bet pot size, so I folded.

      But I feel like I missed a value bet here on the turn. There's plenty of draws that could still call, and maybe some weaker Tx as well. Or is checking here fine too?

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I do like your sizing on the flop.

      I think we have a pretty easy cbet on the turn here and I'd make it around $1.1.
      A lot of worse hands to call - Tx/draws even some PPs like 99.

      On the river folding is fine. FD got there, QT/Q8 beats us, J9/QJ/Q9 so I don't really think we are good 1 out of three times to justify a call.
