      I'd bet turn too.

      As played there's no way you can fold your hand. The only hand you can be afraid of here is QQ, and he didn't even play like he had QQ.

      But I'd actually take more than 0.01 second to call, I want make sure I don't accidentally click on fold. :D

      I bet turn here to make sure I don't have to overbet the river to go all in.
      Also, you need to protect a little bit.
      Another 9 or Q and you're f***ed :)

      I checked behind on the turn so that I could induce a bluff on the river. Why was better to bet the turn than to check behind (for bluff induction)?

      Hi Michailewic,

      The bet on the turn is for value, simply ;) You want to get the money in, and there's a good chance your opponent has a hand, since it's a 3-bet pot. Bluff induce is fine for pot control lines, where you have a good-but-not-great hand on a dry board, in conditions where your opponent will often bluff, and want to keep the pot small. Here however, he will rarely bluff (3-bet pot, 3-flush,...), plus you have a hand that will almost always be ahead (you only lose to QQ and the rare 77, 99), so you have to bet in order to extract maximum value from your hand.

      Regards,
      Craig
