      I should probably probably bet on flop as i had initiative with two overcards. I only checked and the other guy also.
      When turn gave me toppair i had to make a bet. He called. I think he played his QQ very bad as he didnt even make a bet on river when he saw me checking.
      Was I playing ok? I was afraid of straight on river.

      I like betting 3/4 on the turn because you have 2 opponents and its getting drawy. I dont know what to do if he 3 bets you though lol

      I agree he played it badly, a good player would have made you go broke probably

      You should not write which hand villain had because you than could also post the result in normal color... I like the flop check because of the drawy scructure. But you should bet more on the turn close to potsize. When get raised just fold.

      hi
      reload preflop and read the articles as i told you in another post
      if you bet that flop you are comited so check / folding is better
      on the turn bet pot and call a raise
