      Hey Daisuke3823,

      There are two problems with the turn card.

      1) Villain may have improved with TJ, or a K-high flush-draw.
      2) K makes it tougher to extract value from any weak pairs in his range.

      However there may be merit to a bet especially if you pick a small sizing as you did.

      You could even bet $2. So long as villain continues with all draws and worse Qx in his range a bet can never be bad. Potting turn would be a mistake though.

      Checking would also be fine, the best line depends on villain.
