      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $102.88
      MP: $123.34
      CO: $110.50
      BTN: $42.34
      SB: $100.50
      Hero (BB): $30.00

      SB posts SB $0.50, Hero posts BB $1.00

      Pre Flop: (pot: $1.50) Hero has Q:heart: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $1.00, fold, Hero raises to $3.00, BTN calls $2.00

      Flop: ($6.50, 2 players) K:club: 4:diamond: T:diamond:
      Hero bets $3.00, BTN calls $3.00

      Turn: ($12.50, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $12.50, Hero raises to $24.00 and is all-in

      Can't automatically assume he has a King when he calls flop. Checked turn to induce a bet. I felt like I had a good hand, and will make him fold a lot. There is also a chance he calls with hands I beat like a pocket pair. I also have outs going into the river if I'm wrong.

      I have never played with this strategy so high, so this is just my non-expert opinion.

      Preflop your raise is fine.

      On the flop I'd make it a little bit bigger - like $4.

      I'd go for a bet on the turn myself here. I don't really see him floating with complete air here, so I think that if he has a weak made hand he'd go for a check behind and he'd only bet his good hands here.
