Here's the set up
Was playing a tournament and had 5560 in chips
Villon had 10250 in chips
blinds were 50/100
I was on the button w/ K Q uns
Villion was 5 places right of BB
Villon limped
I raised to 3*BB
Villion called
Flop was K97 w 2 h
Villion bet 500 & I raised to 1200, villion called
Q on the 4th street. Villion checks. I go all in. Villion calls
River is a 5 of h, giving Villon A high flush.
How could I have played this better? bet more on the turn, maybe?

probably wouldn't have mattered. they were staying regardless.

3 betting K Q off that early.... not a move I'd recommend though. Too aggressive, too early and will get you into too much trouble.
