      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:club: , Q:club:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $4,00, CO calls $4,00, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($9,50) Q:diamond: , 6:diamond: , A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($9,50) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero raises $13,00 (All-In), CO folds.

      To be honest:

      1) Preflop Not the best move in the world since CO/BU are rather Loose and I am OOP
      2) I was confused on the Flop, Monoboard +Midpair, Pushing is a must but will I attract worse hands to call than ours? So I decided to check for information.
      I definitly intended to play c/f on the Flop, is this okay?

      3) The Turn came a 3rd Queen so I made the push . Also Villain checked behind to induce bluff or he has simply nothing (I think the latter).

      How would you play this?

      Don't become that loose. You can start raising first in TT, AQ from UTG+1 and AJ from MP2, but don't play KQ form MP.

      Check/fold is good. He is not bluffing on this board and after you don't cbet without strong hand.
      I prefer check/shove turn after the flop play. Yes you give a free card, but you don't get any value, except maybe from a weak A with :diamond: .

      Best regards,

      preflop would be fine if CO+BU would be tight

      on the flop i would cbet to avoid ugly spots on the turn if another diamond comes
      will worse hands call? yes, draws!
      as played bet turn smaller
