I was wondering whether it would be better to flat call the turn in this situation while having position in an effort to keep the player in the hand for a river bet. The board pairing river and the pot sized bet that followed put me in a tough spot though.

In the 81 hands we played seemed like a TAG no surprise plays.

Hi Invoked,

I generally prefer to raise the turn here for a few reasons:

1) I don't think Qx+ or the Kc will fold.
2) If we call there's only $3.60 in the pot and he's got $8.70 behind, it's unlikely we can get stacks in against strong 1 pair hands.
3) A 4th club kills our action vs. non Kc hands that would give more turn action right now.

As played river is an easy non-fold... blind vs blind he can have a number of worse hands (including worse flushes). I don't mind your call, but also wouldn't mind setting him all in here as I expect to get called by some worse hands for sure (3x that think they got lucky, smaller flushes, Q9, and AQ/KK/AA specifically). If we had a hand like 5c4c I would just call vs. this sizing instead of raise.
