      why check the turn?

      if you raised

      a) he reraises or calls, give up on river
      b) he folds you win

      I think I checked the Turn because I don't want to invest any more money in the hand and want to keep the pot small.

      I don't want to play bet/fold because I don't think I have much fold equity. I put him on a Queen, Ten or a pocket pair and don't see him folding often enough here. I have some showdown value but I want to get to River as cheap as possible.

      He called your reraise on flop, you think its likely he's giving up on turn?

      why bet the turn? can you explain why semibluffing again on the turn is profitable?

      Fold postflop or imo call 1 street. Raising with MPNK with a shortstack is far from optimal.

      As played, I'd check behind the Turn and Bet $7 on the River imo. He calls with Qx for sure

      Best regards,
