TPGK on a Broadway Board

$.02/.04 Online 6 Players
Effective Stack Size: $3.86

Hero is in CO with AhQd.
UTG raises to $.12. Hero calls. BU calls.

Pot: $.42
Flop: TcAcKh
UTG bets $.21. Hero calls. BU calls.

Pot: $1.05
Turn: 2d
UTG checks. Hero checks. BU checks.

Pot: $1.05
River: 2c
UTG checks. Hero bets $.60. UTG calls.

Hero wins the pot.

So I hesitated to bet the turn since I feared that Villain had AK. In hindsight, I realized that if Villain had a 2 pair or set, Villain would have bet the turn since a J, Q, or club could devalue Villain's hand. Thus, I should have bet the turn since my hand is likely to be the best hand.

    It’s worth keeping in mind that on broadway flops, you are always facing all broadway combos. So, ok, you can discount a portion of those from UTG on turn. Also, the button is still to be heard from. Think the turn check is fine.

    Should this be a preflop 3b instead?

    In position against UTG open the intention is not really clear for me. Think it's too weak for value and too strong to use as a bluff. I am flatting as a default.

    Assuming UTG doesn't get tricky with two pair+ I would put him on mostly AJ and AQ when he checks on the turn. Player behind has a wider range, but is not really your concern. So how do we get the most from AJ? I think betting half pot on turn and river should do the job, by checking turn you are missing out on value.

    Agree.
    A 3bet is here only usefull as isolation if BU/SB/BB flat too easily or if UTG is playing way too many hands and need to be punished

    Sizing is then important. What do you advocate? :)

    Why not pot or overbet? If Villain is blatantly straightforward with 100% c-bet then 100% honnest, big bets are the best I think.
