      I was about to go all in on the river but Q stopped the action.
      he checked so he is not likely to have Q ? but I checked,how should I play it?
      turn raise ?

      Hi. U wanting to turn raise is clearly being results oriented. This is like the only card in the deck which is bad. Always think of the big picture. While this river killed ur action, ur plan to slowplay increases in ev more than raising the turn on 95% of the other cards.

      I dont think u can bet huge here. He also didnt bet the river so i think its really unlikely he has a q. Best play is to bet really small 8 dollars and hope aa kk calls u.

      If u get raised, decide whether he is capable of bluffing and make ur decision.
