      Why do you want to give up the Turn?

      c/c Turn and c/c River is viable but betting Turn is also ok.

      As played easy call on the River though you chop with Qx :(

      Well it's only a weak made hand and OOP. Calling a bigger bet would commit me and I thought I didn't see many weak hands that will pay me off.

      But thinking again, his limping range from UTG will be something like:
      small PP + SC's

      So I beat all PP which didn't become a set. I beat all SC that made 1-pair.

      I am beat by all:
      Set's, trips, stronger Qx, slowplayed monsters

      I am flipping against combo draws (not so many though)

      Do you think we have the better hand here often enough?

      If he is flatting combo draws, u are ahead
      sets/2pairs is just soooooo small of his range that you should not even consider thinking about that.

      Majority of the times he is peeling or has Qx which is unlikely to be KQ/AQ imo

      so it is QJ versus Q9/Q8/Q7s/Q6s etc.

      Hi,

      Hmm yes I agree. But then c/c all the way to river seems to be the line to get most value, weaker hands will proly fold.

      He showed 45s lol.

      I would rather check/raise/fold the flop to extract value from more hands. If he calls I play c/c until the end.
