      Turn Bet vs Missed CBet is 50 (20)

      He's a pretty/very good TAG that I can't figure much out.
      CBet for value and protection.
      Turn give up due to him not folding flop AND K on turn. (also his size screamed VALUE! IMO)
      I'd have XC any J- non club card.

      I'm sure there's a better way to play this hand that I can't figure out atm.

      Hi

      Checking flop is an option for potcontrol. As i always say many times protection is overrated a lot for med strength hands. Qq is clearly a med strength hand only on this wet flop and we can very easily fold if a bad turn card falls.

      I think turn fold is too weak. I would cc and see a river

      Why?

      Also, after a XC on flop, would you XF or XC on this turn card? What do you consider in such a spot a bad turn card?

      I think the k is not a great card. Its still way better than a club or a 7 and 8...

      Yses he has some kc or kj kq qj combos but he bet halfpot and we beat enuff Ac or some other 9x turned into bluff sort of hands.
