      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      Button ($60.15)
      SB ($26.80)
      BB ($19.80)
      14/11, 93 hands

      Gerv (UTG) ($50)
      UTG+1 ($53.10)
      MP1 ($18.05)
      25/2, 72 hands (wtsd 13% (24trials))

      MP2 ($50.45)
      CO ($28.45)

      Preflop: Gerv is UTG with A, Q
      Gerv bets $2, 1 fold, MP1 calls $2, 4 folds, BB calls $1.50

      Flop: ($6.25) K, Q, 5 (3 players)
      BB checks, Gerv bets $3.50, MP1 calls $3.50, 1 fold

      Turn: ($13.25) 8 (2 players)
      Gerv checks, MP1 bets $4

      I just bet to take the pot away , now shortie calls IP and basically I am intending to check/fold the Turn.

      Or do I have to put him all-in on the Turn since he is a noob shortstack?

      You raise UTG then cbet into two players on a board that kind of hits your range. Even noob short stacks will give you a bit of credit here. The only worse hand that calls the flop is probably JT, so I check fold as well.

      That guy is at least tight enough to be choosing the hands he plays preflop, so he probably doesn't have complete trash when he calls that flop.

      Considering he's more likely to have Kx than Qx because we have a Q, it's okay to c/f for a potsize bet, although if we had about 2/3 pot left i'd just shove the turn myself.

      Hope it helps.
