Well it certainly is ugly. But now you have 2 nut draws and an ace/queen aren't horrendous cards to come off if the river betting is cheap. You can opt to blockbet 250 or just push all-in. I like pushing all-in because I'm stupidly aggressive.

If he's on a draw, you probably share it and may have the best of it. Does he fold a winning hand to your push?

Maybe check/call in the long run wins you more when you win and loses you less when you lose.

His betting like 200-300 after a check would be pretty worrisome.

I check here, as bad as that sounds.

This is an ugly hand, I don't really like betting here because he could easily go otp and you are in an even more difficult decision.

The fact that villain limped UTG and then called a 200 bet to me is a sign of him being a huge fish or you being beat. The only possible hand I think he could have that you beat, is QT and him limping UTG I think negates that as a possibility (of course I've seen people do it before but only extreme fish).

Readless I think you might want to let this go.

Yeah... I checked and he bet 300. I'm still wondering if a blocking bet wouldn't have been better here.

Just about the worst thing to see. 200 and I would probably call because of the draw, a push and I might not believe. I think he has you beat. I don't think a blocking bet would have helped. I think I would fold.
