      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6, 5.
      MP2 raises to $0.85, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($1.8) 4, K, 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $1.25, Hero calls $1.25.

      Turn: ($4.3) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $3.00, Hero raises to $30.02, MP2 calls $27.02.

      River: ($64.34) T (2 players)

      Final Pot: $64.34.

      Thought that check-shove would create tremendous amount of fold equity, especially being a bit deeper than 100bb, but in hindsight I think a shove is quite bad w/ given stacks and makes my hand super-obvious!?

      Would've made more sense if I had check-raised the flop and then check-shoved the turn? Getting a free river card or if villain bets, giving me even more FE with this much stronger looking line?

      No reads/stats on villain

      it all depends what hand you want him make to fold
      I think very reasonable line is c/c flop and then lead out even on blank turn. If he has there AQ I doubt he is going to float you on the turn
      c/r flop and then c/rai turn is nice move and should insure quite a lot fold equity to Kx hand if he decides to b/f turn
      Right now your play looks a lot like draw and I think players would b/c to c/rai with top pair hands
      I think you likely gain more fold equity to c/r to 8$ and then shoving any river card
