I'm playing a 45 player sit n go and we're at the bubble. The player on the button has been playing pretty tight, he hasn't been doing much stealing and limping. He limps in so I'm guessing he has low- mid pair, KT, KJ, KQ don't really have a range for him. I flop top pair and he bets the pot. Even though I have a top pair, my kicker is dreadful, not mentioning the fact that I'm out of position. I decided that I would call the flop and fold on the turn if he bets too much. Turn comes, I have two pair. From this point on I didn't really know how to go about playing the hand, even though I was pretty sure I had him beat at that point. I decided to check/call with the intent of shoving on the river River comes the King of clubs which is somewhat of a good card for me because then he hits his range if he was bluffing on the flop and turn, but it was unlikely, I didn't think he would do that. It also completes a flush so I decided to check/call it, not wanting to get raised. Overall I didn't like how I played the hand, I think I should have check/shoved on the turn. How would you go about in playing the hand?
